LP’s & Top 100 Songs 


The programming or “repertoire” 
phase of albums is taking more of a 
cue from the Top 100 singles chart. 
While this statement may have a fa- 
miliar ring about it, a closer look at 
the situation uncovers a far more com- 
prehensive tie-in than in past years. 
The trade, of course, is accustomed 
to hearing today’s singles hits on to- 
morrow’s albums. This has been espe- 
cially true when a hit disk by a par- 
ticular attraction stimulates a rush 
marketing of a same-title album. 

What is now taking place is a study 
of the chart by artists and A&R people 
of all stripes in the vast denominations 
of pop music. A goodly portion of the 
weekly chart can be taken advantage 
of for LP repertory that the record 
buying public is well acquainted with. 
This is a decided departure from the 
days when, for instance, the good- 
music performer would have to hunt- 
down the bulk of his new album ma- 
terial from sources other than the 
singles listing, such as tunes getting 
exposure from TV shows, nightclubs 
and other media where songs may 
establish themselves without the bene- 
fit of a hit record. Our good-music 
friend can at this time peruse the Top 
100 and come up with tunes that have 
wide appeal among the market he is 
most capable of reaching. Plain good 


Tin Pan Alley songs, material from the 
movies and shows are showing on the 
chart in sufficient quantity to assure 
topical LP programming. As for the 
rock-type songs, they’re of a generally 
better quality, and are likely choices for 
wide jazz LP coverage and even by 
good-music performers who are seek- 
ing to broaden their market (and, ergo, 
staying-power) appeal. 

While an LP consisting of a half-a- 
dozen or so “reliables” can strengthen 
the potential of an album, a word 
should be said for the many good 
tunes that for one reason or another 
don’t hit the Top 100. Repertory on 
this end should still be taken into ac- 
count, for the extra time it takes to 
find a “find” could mean the discovery 
of an evergreen that can be profitably 
associated (e.g. Tony Bennett & “I Left 
My Heart in San Francisco”) with the 
performer who first records it or does 
the best job with the tune. This will 
also help lessen a “sameness” of LP 
programming that could result from 
over-attention to the charts. 

With an eye on today's chart and a 
sprinkling of non-chart winners, LP 
product can present to the public a 
valuable selling point. In its listing of 
diversified and, certainly, tried-and- 
true material, the Top 100 is evolving 
into a new selling tool.

Sinatra, Beaties & TJB Top 


'66 Grammy Awards Finalists 


NEW YORK — The award-loaded tal- 
ents of Frank Sinatra, the Beatles 
and The Tijuana Brass compete for 
top honors for this year’s Grammy 
Awards, earned through the auspices 
of NARAS, the disk awards society. 

Results of the final nominations, re- 
leased last week by the Academy re- 
veal that Frank Sinatra is connected 
with seven nominations, five for his 
recording of “Stragers In The Night” 
and one each for his albums, “Sina- 
tra: A Man And His Music” and 
“Sinatra At The Sands.” The Beatles, 
as a group and individually, tied with 
Sinatra in seven categories, for “Re- 
volver” and for “Eleanor Rigby” and 
“Michelle.” Herb Alpert and the Ti- 
juana Brass account for five nomina- 
tions, all associated with “What Now 
My Love.” 

All three have been nominated for 
Album of the Year, along with Barbra 
Streisand for “Color Me Barbra” 
(also nominated in two other cate- 
gories) and the film score of “Dr. 
Zhivago” (nominated in a total of 
four categories). 

Sinatra and the Tijuana Brass are 
also pitted against each other for 
Record of the Year honors, along with 
the New Vaudeville Band’s recording 
of “Winchester Cathedral.” Also in 
this category are two new artists — 
country and western singer David

FRONT COVER: 



Capitol Records is calling 1967 “The 
Year of Martino,” which may have 
been prompted by the songster’s aus- 
picious start for the New Year: the 
presentation of an RIAA-audited gold 
LP award (that’s at least $1 million 
sales) for his album, “Spanish 


Eyes.” Tom Morgan (center), who 
produces Al’s dates, recently pre- 
sented the gold disk on the Mike 
Douglas (right) Show. After the 
show, A1 went out on a cross-coun- 
try promo and personal appearance 
tour for his new LP, “This Love 
For You,” which, along with the gen- 
eral Martino catalog, is receiving an 
extensive ad-merchandising push. Al, 
who’s also got a singles hit, “Daddy’s 
Little Girl,” has six additional TV 
guest shots lined-up.

J/G Starts R&B Label 


PHILADELPHIA— Phil-L.A. of Soul 
is the new wholly-owned R&B affiliate 
of Jamie/Guyden Records, according 
to Larry Cohen, national sales-promo 
head. 

Move was made, Cohen said, so that 
“we can properly channel and expose 
new R&B product and give Jamie/ 
Guyden more powerful identification 
in the blues and R&B field.” 

Jamie is presently the national dis- 
trib of Arctic Records, which has 
been represented on the national 
charts with Barbara Mason, and a 
recent distribution arrangement was 
completed with Dionn Records, whose 
“Dry Your Eyes” by Brenda and The 
Tabulations has been a reported R&B 
breakout in the major markets of 
New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Bal- 
timore, Washington, and Pittsburgh. 

The first “Soul” release is sched- 
uled this week, “A Woman Will Do 
Wrong” by Helene Smith. The disk 
was formerly on the Deep-City label, 
a local Miami based label, which has 
already sold 9,000 units throughout 
the State of Florida. The acquisition 
of the Helene Smith master was made 
by Jamie/Guyden’s president Harold 
B. Lipsius during his recent Miami 
trip. 


EMI, Beatles Extend Disk Pact 9 Years 


NEW YORK— The Beatles have 
signed a new, nine year contract with 
EMI Ltd. The stars, who have shat- 
tered numerous LP and singles sales 
records, will continue to be heard on 
Capitol Records, since EMI is a prin- 
cipal shareholder in the American 
label. 

The deal was completed last week 
at London House, where Sir Joseph 
Lockwood, chairman of EMI, and 
Brian Epstein, manager of the 
Beatles, put their signatures on the 
contract. 


Simultaneous with the new deal has ever known.” 


in converted single units, an LP being 
equivalent to six singles and an EP 
to two. 

In the U.S., Alan Livingston, presi- 
dent of Capitol, noted that 25% of all 
gold records for singles audited by 
the RIAA went to the Beatles, and, 
in 1966, one out of every four gold 
LP’s went to the quartet. Their total 
of 22 gold record awards, needless to 
say, is the largest in the history of 
the business. Livingston termed the 
Beatles the “most creative and tal- 
ented foursome the recording industry 


was word that the group was on their 
way to their 12th gold single on pre- 
release orders of “Strawberry Fields 
Forever” and “Penny Lane,” set for 
official release this week (13). RIAA- 
certification will continue the team’s 
unique string of 22 gold disks (10 
LP’s, 12 singles) that have been certi- 
fied by the RIAA based on pre-release 
orders. 


180,000,000 In Sales 
Since their first EMI release in 
1962 of “Love Me Do,” which sold 
100,000 copies, EMI estimates the 
sales of Beatles disks at 180,000,000 


Capitol’s first Beatles disk, “I Want 
To Hold Your Hand,” was released in 
Dec., 1963. Capitol puts sales on this 
disk at more than 4.5 million. 

The new contract should put to rest 
rumors, which started circulating last 
year, that the group was about to 
split. However, spokesmen for the 
group clarified the matter with state- 
ments that the group would end their 
personal appearances, but continue to 
record. Since that time, no concert 
engagements have been announced. 


NARM Will Set Industry Meet Record 


PHILADELPHIA — The upcoming 
NARM (rack- jobber) convention is a 
complete sell-out, with an increase of 
attendance 40% ahead of last year. 
This will make the gathering, set for 
Mar. 5-10 at the Century Plaza Hotel 
in Los Angeles, the largest industry 
convention in history. 

There are no more exhibit booths 
available, Jules Malamud, NARM 
exec secretary, explained, where 
wholesalers will be meeting with man- 
ufacturers. Additionally, all hotel 
space, both rooms and suites, have 
been completely filled. All available 
facilities at the hotel, including the 
largest meeting rooms and facilities 
on the west coast, will be utilized by 
NARM. 

Among the types of companies rep- 
resented will be rack jobbers, dis- 
tributors, one-stops, manufacturers, 
display companies, record pressers 
and sound studios.

Chess Confab Orders Hit $2 Mil; Big Ad Push 


CHICAGO — More than $2 million in 
album orders were registered at the 
recent Chess-Checker-Cadet sales con- 
vention in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At 
the confab, held Jan. 28-29 at the 
Americana Hotel, the operation intro- 
duced 21 albums, each LP represent- 
ing a year in the age of the label. 

An interesting sidelight to the 
affair was the inability, due to 
the massive snowstorm in Chicago 
(where the company is headquar- 
tered) of Leonard and Marshall Chess 
to attend. While also Chicago-based, 
Max Cooperstein, national sales man- 
ager, Dick LaPalm, director of LP 
sales and Phil Sigman, comptroller, 
made the scene only because they left 
a few days before the storm to com- 
plete arrangements for the confab. 
Chester Simmons, south and eastern 
promo head, also represented the la- 
bel. The storm also put off the start 


of the sales meet from the 27th to 
the 28th. 


Ad Fund Policy 

In a drive to encourage more con- 
sumer advertising by its distribs, the 
company revealed plans for an ad 
fund for each outlet. In essence, Chess 
will put up $2 for every $1 supplied 
by the distrib for consumer ads on 
album product. Total ad allowances 
will be based on 90 % of monthly net 
billing by the distributor. In addition 
to the fund, the label has created a 
number of merchandising pieces, in- 
cluding a light box, point-of-sale dis- 
plays, easels and LP sleeve blow-ups.

Among the label’s new albums are

The Order of the Day! 

The Original Soundtrack Recording of “The Night of the Generals" 

There's big action in store with this great dramatic score from what will surely be one 
of the big films of '67. Composed and conducted by Maurice Jarre, who 
triumphed with “The Professionals” and “Lawrence of Arabia” (which also starred Peter O’Toole 
and Omar Sharif and was produced by Sam Spiegel), the music perfectly 
captures the mood of the film. It's set to coincide with the picture’s release, 
so plan your strategy now! COMO/COSO 5002

Pick of the Week 


STRAWBERRY FIELDS 

FOREVER (4:05) PENNY LANE (3:00) 

[Maclen, BMI — Lennon, [Maclen, BMI — Lennon, 

McCartney] McCartney] 

BEATLES (Capitol 5810) 

This double-barrelled romp is already rocketing to the top of the 
charts. All of the Beatles’ many, many fans will delight to the strains 
and expanded images of the dream-like “Strawberry Fields Forever” 
as well as to the reflective qualities of the bouncy (and slightly more 
prosaic) “Penny Lane.” 


Pick of the Week 


SO GOOD (2:30) [Acuff-Rose, BMI — Orbison, Dees] 
MEMORIES (2:48) [Acuff-Rose, BMI — Orbison, Dees] 

ROY ORBISON (MGM 13685) 

“So Good” should prove a winning track for Roy Orbison. The side 
is marked by a bright, up-beat sound and groovey rhythms. The chanter 
may also get plenty of spins with his “Memories,” on the flip. Both 
sides could move on this one. 


YELLOW BALLOON (2:32) 

[Song City, ASCAP — Zekley, St. John, Lee] 


DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE (2:56) 

[Trousdale, BMI — Pauling, Bass] 

FREE ADVICE (3:15) [Trousdale, BMI— Phillips, Gilliam] 
MAMAS AND PAPAS (Dunhill 4077) 

The Mamas and the Papas are set for a sure-fire ride to the top of 
the charts with “Dedicated To The One I Love.” The side is a groovey, 
harmonic, soft rock venture that is sure to please all of the group’s 
many fans. The flip holds more of the same with a pounding, pulsating 
effort entitled “Free Advice.” 


KANSAS CITY (2:59) [Armo, BMI— Leiber, Stoller] 

STONE FOX (2:35) [Dynatone, BMI — Brown, Hobgood] 
JAMES BROWN (King 6086) 

Here’s another sure-shot chart stand from James Brown and the 
Famous Flames, a potent revamping of the years-back Wilbert Harrison 
smash, “Kansas City.” The Soul King should be right back in the heights 
as a result of this one. “Stone Fox” is a groovy instrumental lid. 


SHOW ME (2:53) [Tree, BMI— Tex] 

A WOMAN SEES A HARD TIME (When Her Man Is Gone) 
(3:01) [Tree, BMI— Tex] 

JOE TEX (Dial 4055) 


TASTE OF RAIN (3:18) [Orville, BMI— Ormsby] 

JAN & DEAN (Columbia 44036) 

Pastmasters at hitmaking on the Liberty label, Jan and Dean debut 
on Columbia with an item called “Yellow Balloon.” A complete change of 
sound highlights the lilting, soft-rock session. May be a winner. “Taste 
Of Rain” is a funk-filled, easy-paced ditty. 


JIMMY MACK (2:47) [Jobete, BMI— Holland, Dozier, Holland] 

THIRD FINGER, LEFT HAND (2:35) 

[Jobete, BMI — Holland, Dozier, Holland] 

MARTHA & VANDELLAS (Gordy 7058) 

Martha and the Vandellas are likely to get a good solid spot on the 
charts with this driving, bouncy, up-beat, R&B workout. The side is 
called “Jimmy Mack” and holds lots of listening pleasure for fans of 
the group. “Third Finger, Left Hand” is a groovey R&B romancer. 


MELLOW YELLOW (2:59) [Peer Int’l., BMI— Leitch] 

WHITE CHRISTMAS (3 O’CLOCK WEATHER REPORT) (2:14) 
[Irving Berlin, ASCAP — Berlin] 

SENATOR BOBBY & SENATOR McKINLEY (Parkway 137) 

Senator Bobby is liable to surpass his recent biggie with this version 
of “Mellow Yellow” on which he is teamed with Senator McKinley. The 
side is a riotous outing that should be fun for all. The flip side brings 
to mind the recent “7 O’Clock News Silent Night” deck. 


Joe Tex steps out of the ballad spotlight temporarily and uncorks a 
jet-propelled throbber that’s aimed for real, real big heights. Titled 
“Show Me,” this powerful lid should be dynamite. Look out! “A Woman 
Sees A Hard Time” is a self-penned moaner. 


GIVE IT TO ME (2:18) [Dick James, BMI— Presley] 
YOU’RE LYING (2:23) [Dick James, BMI— Page, Frechter] 
TROGGS (Fontana 1576) 


GOOD-BYE YOUNG DREAMS (3:19) [Songfest, ASCAP— Scott, Ahlert] 

HIDDEN MEANING (3:49) [Jenny, ASCAP— Scott, Goode] 

DIAHANN CARROLL (Columbia 44016) 

“Good-Bye Young Dreams” is a sure-fire chart item and a strong 
candidate for all kinds of good music and middle-of-the-road air-play. 
The lark may have a powerhouse here. The other side has more goodies 
in store with “Hidden Meaning.” 


The Troggs should find themselves riding another high-riding chart 
item with this thumping, low-keyed, pulsating, bluesy, funk-filled rock 
workout, entitled “Give It To Me.” On the flip, “You’re Lying” is a 
blues-like chanting venture. 


THE RETURN OF THE RED BARON (2:40) 

[Sanphil, BMI — McCullough, Gernhard, McCullough] 

SWEETMEATS SLIDE (2:10) 

[Sanphil, BMI — Winslow, Burdett, Richards, Nunley, Taylor, Balough] 

ROYAL GUARDSMEN (Laurie 3379) 

The Royal Guardsmen should be set for another dash up the charts 
with this power-packed follow-up to their recent smash. The ditty is a 
driving, playful romp entitled “The Return Of The Red Baron.” On the 
flip, “Sweetmeats Slide,” is a smooth, funky, bluesy, good-tyme effort. 


I SOMETHING INSIDE ME (2:42) [Versil, Racer, ASCAP— Holiday] 
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOU (2:52) [S. Louis, BMI— Eckstine] 
RAY CHARLES (ABC 10901) 

Ray Charles and the Ray Charles Orchestra may have a winner with 
this powerful, pounding, pulsating, driving, thumping, R&B moaner, 
entitled “Something Inside Me.” “I Want To Talk About You” on the 
other side is a slow, melodic romancer that should get a lot of air-play 
for the artist. 


GIRL DON’T CARE (2:36) [Jalynne, Cachand, BRC, BMI— Lewis] 

GENE CHANDLER (Brunswick 78014) 

This wailing, blues-drenched ballad should see plenty of both spins 
and sales, resulting in a strong chart position for Gene Chandler. No 
information available on the flip side at this time. 


THE GANG THAT SANG HEART OF MY HEART (2:10) 
[Robbins, ASCAP — Ryan] 

GEORGIA ON MY MIND (2:22) [Peer Int’l, BMI — Carmichal, Gorrell] 

TONY MOTTOLA (Project 3 1303) 

The ace guitarist should have a couple of middle-of-the-road winners 
with this double-barrelled effort. “Georgia” has a late-night bluesy 
quality about it while “The Gang” is a more joyous, up-beat romp. 
Mottola’s guitar technique is a standout on both sides. 


LOSER VILLE (2:23) [H&L, BMI — Meshel, Evans, Fishman] ; 

PRETTY BALLOONS (2:09) [Next Day, ASCAP— Hugo & Luigi, Weiss] ! 

FLIP CARTRIDGE (Parrot 317) 

A steady, thumping beat marks this timeless-though-’30's-oriented 
blueser by Flip Cartridge. This one is bound to get all kinds of air play 
for the songster. On the flip, “Pretty Balloons” is an up-beat, medium- 
paced rock workout.

Pick of the Week 


MOVIN’ MAN (2:24) [H&L, BMI— Barr, Meschell] 

FOR BOBBIE (2:59) [Cherry Lane, ASCAP— Deutschendorf] 
DION & BELMONTS (ABC 10896) 

In a groovey rock bag, this “Movin’ Man” could see all kinds of action 
on the air waves and on the charts. The deck is a driving, pulsating, 
sometimes-frenetic rock workout that could go all the way to the top. 
“For Bobbie” on the flip, is a shuffling, folk-tinged ballad for the romance 
minded. 


WHAT’S THAT GOT TO DO WITH ME (3:05) 

[Wild Indigo, BMI— Glover] 

STALEMATE (2:34) [Wild Indigo, BMI— Glover] 

JIM & JEAN (Verve/Folkways KF5035) 

Looks like spins and sales aplenty for Jim & Jean with this groovey, 
blues-toned, shuffling, folk-oriented, romancer. On the other side, “Stale- 
mate” holds lots of solid rock sounds. All of the duo’s many fans will go 
for both of these. 


RIOT ON SUNSET STRIP (2:20) [Dijon, BMI— Valentino, Fleck] 

BLACK HEARTED WOMAN (2:38) 

[Equinox, Norfolk, BMI — Houle, McMahan] 

STANDELLS (Tower 314) 

Pulsating, driving, thumping, frenetic trip along L.A.’s well known 
Sunset Strip. Side is a message/protest effort and could win all kinds of 
favor with the teens. The Standells may also have a powerhouse with 
the bluesy “Black Hearted Woman” on the flip. 


BOY WATCHERS’ THEME (2:35) 

[Five Sisters, BMI — Spitelera, Newkirk, Olsheski, DeVillier] 

YO-YO (PUPPET SONG) (2:36) 

[Roosevelt, BMI — Kaempfert, Moch, Snyder, Singleton] 

AL HIRT (RCA Victor 9106) 

A1 (He’s The King) Hirt may have another biggie with this bouncy, 
brassy, answer to “Girl Watchers.” On the other side, “Yo-Yo” (Pup- 
pet Song)” holds more listening joys. Both sides are strong air-play 
candidates and should be eagerly sought after by the artist’s many fans. 


DON’T TIE ME DOWN (2:49) 

[Razzle Dazzle, BMI — Adams, Pike, Randazzo] 

WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY TO FORGET YOU (2:32) 
[Razzle Dazzle, BMI — Hall, Pike, Randazzo] 

ANTHONY & IMPERIALS (Veep 1255) 

“Don’t Tie Me Down” may prove a rocket to the top of the chart 
for Anthony & the Imperials. The deck is a thumping, pounding, rhyth- 
mic romp marked by very groovey instrumentation. “Where There’s A 
Will There’s A Way To Forget You” is a shuffling, tear-stained blueser. 


GONDOLIERS, SHAKESPEARES, OVERSEERS, PLAYBOYS AND 
BUMS (2:20) [Borscht, BMI — Greenbaum] 

DADDY I KNOW (2:50) [Borscht, BMI — Greenbaum] 

DR. WEST’S MEDICINE SHOW AND JUNK BAND (Go-Go 00102) 

Dr. West’s Medicine Show and Junk Band should make it all the way 
to the top of the charts with this folk-flavored, slow-paced, reflective, 
pulsating ditty entitled “Gondoliers, Shakespeares, Overseers, Playboys 
And Bums.” On the flip, “Daddy I Know” delivers another message. 


MY BABY LIKES TO BOOGALOO (2:40) [Tootee, BMI— Gardner] 

YOU GOT ME WHERE YOU WANT ME (2:34) 

[Anteresgeo, BMI — Moss, Brown] 

EMPERORS (Mala 554) 

The Emperors should chop their way to the top of the charts with 
this groovey, driving, up-beat, boogaloo follow-up to their while-back 
“Karate” venture. On the flip, “You Got Me Where You Want Me” is 
a thumping, pulsating ditty.

LOVIN’ COHENS (MGM 13700) 

Look for walloping spins and sales to greet this Yiddish dialect spoof 
on the Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Nashville Cats.” Smoothly offered by the 
incomparable Lovin’ Cohens, “Noshville Katz” is a must for chartsville. 
“Shoily Klein” is Yiddish-rocker also filled with laughs. 


THE FRENCH GIRL (2:55) [M. Witmark, ASCAP— Tyson, Fricker] 
DAILY FLASH (UNI 55001) 

Penned by the Ian & Sylvia folk duo, “The French Girl” (as done by

newcomer group may have a winner with this gentle, easy going, ballad 
for the romance minded. No information is available on the flip side at 
this time. 


DESTINY’S CHILD (2:08) [Gringo, Cricket, BMI— Curtis] 

THE COLLECTOR (2:30) [Cricket, BMI— Curtis] 

SONNY CURTIS (Viva 607) 

This groovey, up-beat, folk-styled, country-flavored, rhythmic, dance- 
able, melodic, sprightly, bouncy, medium-paced, blues-shadowed, rock 
romancer called “Destiny’s Child” is an up-front contender for top chart

the romantically inclined.

DOWN (1 :58) [Rising Sons, BMI — Russell, Cason] 

FULLER BROS. (Monument 995) 

The Fuller Brothers may go all the way to the top of the charts with 
“Big Church Wedding.” The side is an up-beat, easy-going, harmonic, 
romp that is sure to get spins aplenty. “Down,” over on the other side,

SMOKEY AND HIS SISTER (Columbia 43995) 

Smokey and His Sister are strong contenders for air play and sales 
with this smooth, groovey, easy going, gentle romp entitled, “Creators 
Of Rain.” Side is marked by lush ork’ ing and effective harmonies. “In 
A Dream Of Silent Seas” is a folky, far-away-like excursion into the 
dream world.

THINK I’M BEING HAD (2:18) [Jakolm, ASCAP— Holmes] 

JAKE HOLMES (Tower 313) 

Though new to recording, Jake Holmes may have a winner with “You 
Can’t Get Love,” a bluesy, rock romancer. “Thing I’m Being Had” is 
a powerful, bluesy, medium-paced ballad that holds a definite appeal for 
the more mature listener. Both sides are penned by the artist. 


COME ON A MY HOUSE (2:22) 

[Duchess, BMI — Bagdasarian, Saroyan] 

I’M HOME (2:02) [Piote, BMI— Michaels] 

BLUEBEARDS (Date 1547) 

The Bluebeards may be riding a chart-bound vehicle with this up- 
to-date version of “Come On A My House.” Side is a pounding, pul- 
sating, frenetic effort that should please the teens. “I’m Home” is a 
thumping ditty for the romance minded.

Edvard Grieg and Paderewski were 
heard on Sunday, Jan. 29 in a new 
stereo FM concert series, “Keyboard 
Immortals Play Again,” over WEFM- 
Chicago. Their performances were 
captured on a turn-of-the-century 
electro-mechanical recording piano. 
Music is replayed from paper rolls by 
a Welte Vorsetzer on a Bosendorfer 
Imperial Concert Grand, reputed to be 
one of four such pianos in the U.S. 
Among the highlights of the first 
program was an unpublished Liszt ar- 
rangement of Chopin’s “The Maiden’s 
Wish.” The paper roll is inscribed 
“As Played by Herr Franz Liszt.” The 
word Vorsetzer is German for “sitter- 
in-front.” Unlike a player piano which 
works on the hammers, the Welte ma- 
chine plays the keyboard in the same 
manner as a human pianist. It has 
80 padded “fingers” levered to imitate 
the joints of a pianist. The playback 
machine and method of recording, us- 
ing electrical impulses to a seismo- 
graph-like instrument, is claimed to 
duplicate the fine shadings and indi- 
vidual touches of the artist. Master 
rolls were recorded in a Rhine castle 
and replayed there by a Vorsetzer for 
pianists to approve or disapprove. The 
producer of the series is also its 
sponsor, Joseph Tushinsky, president 
of Superscope. 

If you’re overweight and have a 
competitive nature, here’s an idea for 
slimming down. Form a “Chub Club” 
and see which member loses the most 
weight. That's what the deejays of 
KEX-Portland, Ore. did. When they 
decided to run a contest among them- 
selves following the hearty eating of 
the holidays, KEX listeners made so 
many comments that the deejays de- 
cided to let them in on it. All the 
listener has to do is guess to the near- 
est ounce the total net amount of 
weight that will be lost by the deejays 
between Jan. 10 and Feb. 28. First 
prize for the winning listener is a 
year’s supply of steaks, 50 pounds of 
potatoes, and a crate of Sunkist 
oranges. The deejay who loses the 
most weight will receive a deluxe 
steak dinner for two and a banana 
split. 

In what is reportedly a radio first, 
the CBS network is broadcasting the 
music of pianist Irving Fields and his 
trio from the Lucerne Hotel in Miami 
Beach, Fla. From the same spot, 
Fields’ sister Penny Fields conducts 
her radio show nightly from midnight 
to 1 A.M. Fields presents what could 
be termed a “mini version” of his 
three Carnegie Hall concerts. He is 
backed up by Henry Senick on bass 
and Mike Bruno on drums. 

WABC-New York news editor Paul 
Ehrlich has been honored by his fel- 
low journalists by being elected to the 
exclusive “Inner Circle” of political 
writers. Once open only to members 
of the press, the “Inner Circle” broke 
precedent with this tradition on Jan. 
20 by inviting five New York broad- 
casters into its ranks. Of these five, 
Ehrlich was the only radio journalist 
to be so honored. The “Inner Circle” 
membership is comprised of reporters 
who have covered some phase of City 
Hall activity. Ehrlich was W ABC’s 
first City Hall reporter, assigned full- 
time to that post after covering 
Mayor John V. Lindsay’s election 
campaign in the fall of 1965. In Oct. 
1966, he was appointed to position of 
news editor. Paul Ehrlich holds a B.A. 
in history from Harvard University 
and a Master’s in international poli- 
tics from Johns Hopkins. He joined 
ABC as a news writer with the radio 
network in May of 1961. 

“Cousin” Warren Duffy of WPGC- 
Washington marched over 38 miles, 
from Dulles Airport to Washington, 
to climax the 1967 Greater Washing- 
ton, D.C. March of Dimes. At 5:45 
A.M., an airport send-off was held in 
the rain. Then Cousin Duffy began his 
march. He kept walking as long as 
telephone contributions were phoned 
in. When the battery of operators 
found all contribution lines “dead,” 


a signal was flashed to the cavalcade 
escorting Cousin Duffy on his march 
and the parade came to a halt. During 
the entire day, the march was stopped 
only three times. As Cousin Duffy 
passed through towns between Dulles 
Airport and D.C., dignitaries turned 
out to welcome him. Mayors, Council 
members, Senators, Congressmen and 
local March of Dimes officials were on 
hand at three big receptions along the 
way. Finally, at 6:15 P.M., Cousin 
Duffy reached the Washington Monu- 
ment where Miss Maryland, Linda 
Pelluze, was waiting to plant a kiss 
on the cheek of the marathon walker. 
The day-long fund-raising effort, cov- 
ered extensively with on-the-spot re- 
ports by the outlet’s news department, 
went over its $10,000 goal by more 
than $1,500. Duffy was rewarded with 
a long weekend off by station man- 
ager Bob Howard, who termed the 
march “one of the greatest public 
service efforts Washington, D.C. has 
ever seen 

Kyle Rote, WNEW-New York’s di- 
rector of sports and community rela-

Service Award from the Advertising 
Club of New York. Rote, ex New York 
Giant flanker back and a member of 
professional football’s Hall of Fame, 
has been with WNEW Radio since 
1960. He was cited for his contribu- 
tions to football, for his work with 
youth in the metropolitan area, and 
for his overall approach to broadcast- 
ing and advertising. James J. DeUrso 
of Glamour magazine was chairman 
of the event and made the presenta- 
tion to Rote.

Jimmy Castor 



Jimmy Castor is represented on the 
charts this week with “Hey Leroy, 
Your Mama’s Calling You,” which is 
number 35. The artist, 24, began the 
long upward climb to success by play- 
ing numerous club dates, such as 
union dinner dances, bar mitzvahs, 
sales meetings, fashion shows and la- 
dies’ luncheons. He learned to adapt 
to audiences, back-up musicians, light- 
ing, and sound systems. This rigorous 
training has now stood him in good 
stead. 

Jimmy Castor was born in the 
Bronx where he was raised with his 
sister, Linda. He gained admittance 
to the High School of Music and Art 
where he got a fine background in 
musical theory and practice. He tried 
his hand at writing, and his credits 
include “I Promise To Remember,” 
recorded by Frankie Lymon and the 
Teenagers. The singer’s outside inter- 
ests include baseball, basketball, and 
billiards. He would like to approach 
an acting career and eventually work 
in the production and business side 
of recording and show business. 


Jefferson Airplane 



The Jefferson Airplane is currently 
flying on the charts with “My Best 
Friend,” which is number 92 this 
week. The sextet is composed of 
Marty Balin, lead singer; Paul Kant- 
ner, “driving lead rhythm guitar”; 
Grace Slick, second lead singer; 
Jorma Ludwik Kaukonen, solo guitar; 
Spencer Dryden, drummer; and Jack 
Casady, bass. After the Jefferson Air- 
plane had performed at “The Ma- 
trix,” a San Francisco nightspot, they 
signed with RCA Victor and they 
were on their way. Founder and 
leader of the group is Marty Balin, 
whose first show biz experience was 
in touring musical comedy produc- 
tions as a singer and dancer. Paul 
Kantner had several years’ experience 
playing guitar and 5-string banjo 
when he met Balin in a local club and 
teamed up with him. Grace Slick is 
a former model who had performed 
with another group, the Great So- 
ciety. Jorma Kaukonen earned a de- 
gree in sociology from Santa Clara 
University and was induced to join 
the Airplane by his friend, Paul Kant- 
ner. Spencer Dryden was recruited for 
the group by Balin, and Jack Casady 
was sent for from Washington, D.C. 
when Kaukonen recommended him as 
a good bass player. That’s the lineup 
fans, but you don’t need a score card 
to tell the Jefferson Airplane from the 
other teams.

Shaw Artists Sue Glaser, 
ABC Over Otis Redding 

NEW YORK — Shaw Artists Corp. 
has filed suit against Joe Glaser and 
his Associated Booking Corp. in an 
action involving Otis Redding, the 
star blues singer. 

Suit, asking for “compensatory and 
punitive damages” in excess of $500,- 
000, charges Glaser and his company 
with “interfering with SAC’s exclu- 
sive representation agreement with 
Redding. Filed in New York Supreme 
Court, the action notes that Redding 
inked a pact with SAC in March of 
1964 for a three-year period ending 
March 11, 1967. A three-year exten- 
sion of the contract was negotiated 
last Oct., the suit contends. 

The complaint further charges that 
Glaser and ABC have “acted as 
agents for . . . Redding and have ob- 
tained employment engagements for 
him and have accepted commissions 
for . . . work, knowing the existence 
of the exclusive agency contract be- 
tween Redding and plaintiff.” 

In related actions, S.A.C. instituted 
proceedings, which will probably re- 
sult in arbitration, against Otis Red- 
ding with A.G.V.A. (American Guild 
of Variety Artists) in accordance 
with A.G.V.A. rules and regulations. 
Such proceedings are designed “to 
force Redding to comply with the 
terms of his S.A.C. contract.” At the 
same time it was learned that a par- 
allel course of action has been re- 
ferred to legal counsel in Georgia who 
are preparing similar charges against 
Redding’s personal manager, Phil 
Walden. 

During the past year Otis Redding 
has been one of the hottest R&B art- 
ists in the country. His series of his 
singles include “Try A Little Tender- 
ness,” “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa,” “My Lov- 
er’s Prayer,” and “Satisfaction.” In 
addition, his LP’s “Dictionary of 
Soul,” “Otis Blue” and “The Soul 
Album” have met with success. 


Decca Hires Tito Burns 
To Hunt Down Coral Talent 

NEW YORK— Decca Records has en- 
tered into an exclusive production 
deal with Tito Burns, the English 
agent-promotor, that involves new 
talent for the Coral label, reports 
Marty Salkin, vp of Decca. 

The term of the agreement is for 
three years and will allow Burns sole 
discretion in finding artists and sign- 
ing them directly to the U. S. label 
for world-wide release on Coral Rec- 
ords. Burns will operate his new 
Coral affiliation through his own ex- 
isting production company’s Linden 
Records. 

Burns, a well-known English mu- 
sic business figure, managed pop star 
Cliff Richards for a period of three- 
and-a-half years before forming his 
own talent agency to represent such 
top names as The Rolling Stones, 
Dusty Springfield, New Vaudeville 
Band, The Searchers and The Yard- 
birds, among others. In May of 1966, 
Burns sold the company to English 
promoter Harold Davison and now 
serves as deputy managing Director 
for the Davison enterprise. 

Burns will coordinate all his record 
production activities with the Coral 
representative in England, Mike Slo- 
man, who reports directly to Hubert 
Stone, international director, at the 
company’s exec offices in New York. 


Epic Issues British Single 

NEW YORK — Epic Records is re- 
leasing the British single, “Here 
Comes My Baby,” by the Tremeloes. 
The deck was released in England 
recently on the CBS label. The tune 
was written by Cat Stevens. 

“Good Day Sunshine,” another sin- 
gle by the Tremeloes recently released 
by Epic, was well received in this 
I country.

ABC To Publish , Cut 

NEW YORK— ABC Records is a 
major investor in a new musical 
comedy “Henry, Sweet Henry”, based 
on the successful film “The World of 
Henry Orient”, reports Larry New- 
ton, ABC president. Written by 
Nunnally Johnson, with music and 
lyrics by Bob Merrill, directed by 
George Roy Hill, produced by Edward 
Specter Productions and Norman 
Twain, the musical will open on 
Sept. '26th, at a theater to be an- 
nounced. 

Besides obtaining the original cast 
album, of major importance in the 
agreement is the acquisition by ABC’s 
Ampco Music, Inc. (ASCAP) of the 
publishing rights for the entire Bob 
Merrill score. 

Merrill, one of ASCAP’s top com- 
posers, is currently represented on 

Janoff Will Handle 
ABC's ASCAP Firms 

Charlie Janoff has been appointed 
by Larry Newton, president of ABC 
Records, Inc., as general manager of 
the company’s ASCAP music publish- 
ing firms with immediate responsi- 
bility for concentrating on the Bob 
Merrill score for the new Broadway 
musical “Henry, Sweet Henry”, to be 
published by ABC’s Ampco Music, 
with the original cast album on ABC 
Records. 

Janoff is also responsible for ABC’s 
ASCAP firms, Apt Music Corp., and 
Boyle-Heights Music, Inc. In addition, 
he will handle the standard song 
catalogs of the Porgie Music, Inc. and 
Westpar Music Corp., bith BMI affili- 
ates. Dennis Minogue remains as pro- 
fessional manager of the company’s 
BMI publishing firms. 

A veteran of the music business, 
Janoff has been associated with scores 
from some of Broadway’s biggest hits 
including “The Sound of Music”, 
“Pajama Game”, “Damn Yankees”, 
“West Side Story”, and “Camelot”. 
His most recent activity was an inde- 
pendent promotion firm handling 
clients such as A1 Hirt and Patti 
Page, as well as various music pub- 
lishers. 


New Merrill Musical 

Broadway by the lyrics for “Funny 
Girl.” He also wrote the complete 
scores for other Broadway musicals, 
“Carnival”, “Take Me Along”, and 
“New Girl In Town.” Merrill’s long 
list of song hits includes “How Much 
Is That Doggie In The Window”, 
“Make Yourself Comfortable”, “If I 
Knew You Were Coming I’d Have 
Baked A Cake”, “Love Makes The 
World Go Round”, and “People.” 

Nunnally Johnson has enjoyed a 
long and successful career as a 
writer, director, and producer of 
many motion pictures. His most recent 
film, “The Dirty Dozen”, will be re- 
leased shortly. Johnson’s daughter, 
Nora, wrote the novel which provided 
the basis for their collaboration on 
the motion picture success, “The 
World of Henry Orient.” 

George Roy Hill who directed “The 
World of Henry Orient” will also 
direct “Henry, Sweet Henry”. Hill, 
who on Broadway directed “Look 
Homeward, Angel”, “Greenwillow”, 
and “Period of Adjustment” has in 
recent years turned to films and has 
become one of the most acclaimed 
screen directors. In addition to “The 
World of Henry Orient”, he directed 
“Hawaii” and “Thoroughly Modern 
Millie”, which opens in New York 
City on Mar. 2nd starring Julie 
Andrews, Carol Channing, and Mary 
Tyler Moore. 

Edward Specter Productions, of 
which Specter is president, was last 
represented on Broadway as co-pro- 
ducer of the hit comedy, “Any 
Wednesday”. It also co-produced Mr. 
Hill’s production of the Pulitzer Prize 
winner, “Look, Homeward, Angel”. 
Mr. Twain, a young but active theatri- 
cal producer, also is vice-president of 
the corporation that operates the 
Anta Theatre. 

“Henry, Sweet Henry” is a New 
York story. It deals with two teenage 
girls who complicate the amorous, 
lecherous existence of a concert 
pianist named Henry Orient. Rehear- 
sals will start in July with Michael 
Bennett serving as choreographer and 
Robert Randolph designing the set- 
tings. A pre-Broadway engagement 
will precede the local premiere.

NEW YORK — The songwriting team 
of Marian Grudeff and Ray Jessel

Tommy Valando’s Sunbeam Music. 
Pair comes to the operation following 
a non-contractual relationship with 
E.B. Marks, for which the pair turned 
out the recent Broadway show, “Baker 
Street.” Their last assignment for 
Marks was the English lyric to Riz 
(“More”) Ortolani’s “All,” current 
getting chart attention. They have 
inked a long-term deal with the com- 
pany. 

First major assignment for the 
team at Sunbeam is a new version of 
“Hellzapoppin,” which will open at 
the Canadian Expo 67 World’s Fair

ance next Fall. It’s being produced 
by Alexander H. Cohen, who also put 
“Baker Street” on the boards.

Grudeff and Jessel have also penned 
a tune that’s going out on its own. 
Item is called “Down & Out” and disk 
sessions are currently being lined-up. 

Pair started writing exclusively as 
a team in 1955. They have written 
and continue to write Canada’s annual 
satirical revue, “Spring Thaw,” which 
this year will celebrate Canada’s Cen- 
tennial Year. Grudeff is a native of

Schwartz’ Publishing Firms 
Consolidate Under Day, Maresca 

NEW YOEK — The Bob and Gene 
Schwartz publishing interests have 
been consolidated under the direction 
of Joey Day, professional manager, 
and Ernest Maresca, creative consult- 
ant, according to the Schwartz’ and 
Elliot Greenberg, secretary of the op- 
eration. Also, Regina Reiss will han- 
dle the copyright dept, as adminis- 
trative assistant. The consolidation 
has evolved, it was said, because of 
the firms’ activity and growth in re- 
cent months, including two top ten 
hits, “See You In September” by the 
Happenings on the B. T. Puppy label 
and “Sweet Talkin’ Guy” by the Chif- 
fons on Laurie Records. 

In addition to the standard respon- 
sibilities of professional manager, Day 
will consult record company A&R 
men to determine their specific needs 
and then furnish them with material 
designed especially to satisfy their 
requirements. He will further assist 
the diskeries by providing strong LP 
suggestions arranged around a central 
theme. For example, Day is including 
“See You In September” in an origi- 
nal list of suggested ideas for a 
“September” album. 

Twenty-seven-year-old Ernie Ma- 
resca, already one of the industry’s 
most successful contemporary song- 
writers, will fill the newly-instituted 
post of creative consultant by work- 
ing with new composers, guiding and 
refining their creative ability to maxi- 



DAY, REISS, MARESCA 


mize the quality of their musical out- 
put. He is the author of such hits 
as “Runaround Sue,” “No One 
Knows,” “Lovers Who Wander,” “The 
Wanderer,” and “Donna, the Prima- 
donna” all by Dion; “Shout, Shout, 
Knock Yourself Out,” which he re- 
corded himself for London Records; 
“Whenever A Teenager Cries” by Re- 
parta and the Deirons; “Come On, 
Little Angel” by the Belmonts; and 
“Run Around” by the Regents on 
Roulette. Maresca has also been 
signed to the pubbery as an exclusive 
writer.

Catalog Acquisitions 

The acquisition of catalogs has 
played an important role in the pub- 
lishing firms’ recent success. “See 
You In September,” their recent hit, 
was originally in the old Jack Gold 
catalog. Other major acquisitions now 
flying the Schwartz family banner in- 
clude “Love Me Forever,” “Look 
Homeward Angel,” “Baby Blue,” and 
“Hideaway.” 

Day and Maresca, who feel that 
writers have never had a better op- 
portunity to have their material re- 
corded because of the extensive avail- 
ability of both recording dates and 
top artists, have embarked upon a 
full-scale hunt for writing talent. 
A Feb. release schedule includes 
“Pride” by Bobby Staff on RCA, 
“Shadows” by Christopher Robbins for 
RCA, “You Captivate Me” by the 
Vandals on Cameo-Parkway, “Beg, 
Borrow And Steal” by the Dematrons 
on Cameo-Parkway, “Under The 
Brooklyn Bridge” by Renee St. Clair 
on Jubilee, “Hey Girl, What’s It 
Gonna Be” by Christopher on Amy 
Mala, “If I Knew Then What I Know 
Now” by the Chiffons on Laurie and 
“The Return Of The Red Baron” by 
the Royal Guardsmen on Laurie (fol- 
low-up to “Snoopy Vs. The Red Ba- 
ron.”). 

The consolidated Schwartz family 
of music publishing companies in- 
cludes S and J Music Pub. Corp. 
(ASCAP), Schwartz Music Co., Inc. 
(ASCAP),Vibar Music (ASCAP), Just 
Music Corp. (BMI), Roznique Music 
Inc. (BMI), Rogelle Music (BMI).

HOLLYWOOD — The Outsiders, who | 
last year made a lot of noise with 
their Capitol single, “Time Won’t Let 
Me,” have come up with another 
“time”-titled disk — “I’ll Give You . 
Time (To Think It Over).” The new * 
record will be released by Capitol on

Hurt You,” another Tom King-penned 
composition. 


two artists signed by Sierra are coun- 
try and western singer Doug Warren 
and rhythm and blues singer Ted Wil- * 
son. 

Sawyer has been in the record busi- 
ness in the Los Angeles area for the 
past five years and has been promo- 
tion manager of two of the city’s 
largest distributors prior to forming 
his own operation.

'Georgy Girl' Headlines 
Chappell's Singles Bid 

NEW YORK — Chappell & Co. is cur- 
rently making a strong singles bid. 
The drive is spearheaded by “Georgy 
Girl,” written by Tom Springfield and 
recorded by the Seekers, and a smash 
that hit the top of the charts this 
week. 

In addition, Chappell is getting an 
unusually heavy run of activity on its 
score for “I Do, I Do” by Tom Jones 
and Harvey Schmidt, with at least 
one single, “My Cup Runneth Over” 
recorded by Ed Ames for RCA Vic- 
tor, already bulleted on the charts. 
Another version of the tune is due 
out by Billy Eckstine for Motown. 

“What Is A Woman,” also from “I 
Do, I Do,” is getting good regional 
action on the version by Chicago 
piano stylist Eddie Higgins for the 
Atlantic label. This disk was produced 
through the Windy City’s Dunwich 
Productions. Other treatments of the 
song are expected from Eydie Gorme 
for Columbia and Vic Damone for 
Victor; and still another number from 
the show — “The Honeymoon Is Over” 
— is slated to be cut by Steve Law- 
rence for Columbia 

A raft of singles are upcoming on 
the title song from Otto Preminger’s 
‘Hurry Sundown.” Little Richard has 
waxed the side for Epic, and both 
Harry Belafonte and Hugo Monte- 
negro will have Victor versions. Writ- 
ten by Montenegro and Buddy Kaye, 
the song has also been recorded by 
Jaxon Reese on Cameo-Parkway and 
Malcolm Hayes on Liberty; and 
Count Basie has cut “Hurry Sundown 
Blues” for Command. 

On another front, Senator Everett 
McKinley Dirksen’s “Gallant Men,” 
background score for which is pub- 
lished by Chappell, moved onto the 
country charts last week to become a 
dual-market entry. A cover version 
of ‘Gallant Men” has been waxed by 
Ray Anthony; like the Senator’s orig- 
inal recording, this is on Capitol. 

Other new Chappell singles include 
Tony Bennett’s recording of Robert 
Farnon’s “Country Girl” on Colum- 
bia, and “Me And My Gun” by the 
Chuck Cassey Singers on Dot. The 
latter tune was penned by Cassey and 
Buddy Bernier. 

In the album field, Victor will have 
the soundtrack for the movie “Hurry 
Sundown.” Chappell is publisher of 
the title song and background score 
from the film. The same label this 
week recorded the original cast ver- 
sion of the off-Broadway revival of 
Rodgers and Hart’s “By Jupiter.” 


New Vaudeville Tour 

NEW YORK — With a Winter tour, 
extending from Feb. 14th through 
March 12th, the New Vaudeville Band 
has begun plans for a subsequent re- 
turn to the United States in mid- 
Summer 1967. 

The London-based, 30’s styled group 
who swept to the top of all music in- 
dustry charts with their first Amer- 
ican disk, “Winchester Cathedral” 
will be featured guests on Hollywood 
Palace and appear at colleges, ball- 
rooms, and concert halls during their 
forthcoming tour. Outstanding dates 
include a March 4th date at Sym- 
phony Hall in Newark, March 5th at 
the Westbury Music Fair, and March 
12th at Philadelphia’s Civic Center. 

When the Fontana recording artists 
return in mid-Summer they will be 
appearing at leading outdoor show- 
cases such as The Michigan State 
Fair (August 29-30) and Atlantic 
City’s Steel Pier (July 23-29). 

After achieving sales of over two 
million copies of “Winchester Cathe- 
dral” and nearly a million albums, 
the group has just released a follow- 
up single titled “Peek-A-Boo.”

Decca Markets Own 
Drums, Tambourines 

NEW YORK — Decca Records has 
marketed a line of drums and tam- 
bourines carrying the Decca trade 
name. A year ago the company entered 
the musical instrument business with 
the introduction of a line of guitars, 
amplifiers and accessories. 

The new Decca drum and tambou- 
rine line has been devised as a basic 
stock for any music and record dealer. 

The introductory Decca drums con- 
sist of a completely assembled four 
piece drum set with fourteen deluxe 
accessories at a suggested list price 
of $259.95, including the accessories. 

At the same time the company has 
introduced a complete snare drum kit 
with seven deluxe accessories at a 
suggested list of $49.95, including 
accessories. 

All drums are full dimension and 
are shipped to the dealer completely 
assembled. 

The tambourines are being marketed 
initially as a basic stock of six instru- 
ments, with one or two rows of 
jingles, selling at a suggested list of 
$4.50 to $12.00, which is expected to 
fill all existing market demands. 

These new Decca instruments, as 
are all the company’s widely diversi- 
fied products, are being sold through 
all Decca branches. Point-of-sale 
merchandising aids will be available 
to support the dealer in displaying 
this new Decca musical instrument 
product. The company’s sales force is 
now contacting their respective ac- 
counts with complete details of the 
new line.

TALENT ON STAGE 



ANGEL TOWN SOUND 

LOS ANGELES — Borrowing a track from Berry Gordy and the various Mo- 
town packages, Okeh and Epic is testing its own sorty of astringent soul. And. 
judging from the prodigious legion of new talents interspersed with several 
thriving R&B charters, Okeh and Epic’s impact on the market should soon be 
distending far beyond the environs of L.A. and, perhaps, as wide asunder as 
Soul Town itself. Billed as the “Angel Town Sound,” the low ceilinged 54 Club 
on Broadway was a logical choice for the event, presented by KGFJ in conjunc- 
tion with Okeh-Epic. In its right and proper element of electricity or, as Jim 
Randolph of KGFJ emphasized, “in the heart of soul”. 

Opening with a frenetic flourish, the Angel Town Band, closer to the beat 
of Basie than to Berry, set the pace for eight acts that followed — all deliber- 
ately dithyrambic. 

Walter Jackson, the Vibrations and Major Lance were not present (though 
each is scheduled to be included in future packages) but Little Richard, Larry 
Williams, Johnny Watson, Cookie Jackson, Nichelle Nichols, the Triumphs, the 
Autographs and Seven Souls filled the breach admirably. Particular standouts 
were Larry Williams’ “I’m the One You Want,” the Dylan title which’ll be 
released on Okeh within the next few weeks; Williams teaming with Watson 
for a vocal version of “Mercy Mercy” (a rush release) and Little Richard’s 
reprise of his single “Poor Dog Can’t Wag His Tail”. Most impressive, at least 
visually, were the Seven Souls, an ebulliant mixed group of boys who simul- 
taneously sing, dance and play instruments (musical, but understandably a bit 
ragged). 

Williams, reeently assigned to co-produce R&B sides with Epic’s west coast 
A&R chief Stu Phillips, MC’d the show — an explosive and affirmative testi- 
monial to Epic-Okeh’s avid pursuit of the R&B buck. 


THE LOST SOULS 

NEW YORK. — The Lost Souls, not really lost at all, can easily be found at 
Cheetah. As this “now” club, the quartet is laying down the modern sounds of 
today Cheetah itself is the sort of discotheque which seizes the visitor and 
shakes him awake if he has been injudicious enough to approach the club in a 
somnolent state. The rock groups which preceded the Lost Souls were raucous 
and ear-splitting, and the degree of their talents was difficult to ascertain 
amidst the sea of noise created by drums, and by electric guitars set flush 
against microphones. Loud, strident vocals also contributed to the general 
uproar. 

At this point, the Lost Souls came on stage. Things immediately took a turn 
for the better. The group led off with their current single, “It Won’t Work 
Out, Baby,” a gentle, slow-pulsing ditty. They followed this up with “There’s 
A Change Gonna Come” and “Get-It.” The Lost Souls are a fast-stepping 
group, and they move smartly around the stage on fast numbers. They gave 
each effort a smooth, stylish interpretation. “I’m Losin’ You,” a rocking, sway- 
ing outing was particularly effective, as was “Are You Lonely For Me, Baby?”, 
a workout which gave the quartet an opportunity to display their expert har- 
monizing. 

The new Glasco label, for whom the Lost Souls record, would seem to have 
made a discovery.

stage with Dolores Gray, star of the 
mainstemer. Marilyn (left) has just 
recorded the title song from the show. 


UA In Big Promo 
Push For Easybeats 

NEW YORK— With the Spencer 
Davis Group’s single of “Gimme 
Some Lovin’ ” now firmly entrenched 
as one of the nation’s biggest singles, 
and still growing in strength, United 
Artists Records is swinging the full 
impact of its promotional, publicity 
and advertising forces behind another 
English import. The recipient of the 
oll-out UA push is “Friday On My 
Mind” by the Easybeats, already 
popular in several European countries 
and in England. 

Newly-appointed singles promo 
chief, Eddie Levine, has earmarked 
the Easybeat’s rocker as his top plug, 
and UA’s network of local promotion 
men are following suit. A film of the 
vocal and instrumental combo per- 
forming “Friday On My Mind” is now 
available to teenage TV shows 
throughout the nation, and UA’s staff 
is bombarding deejays with flyers 
extolling the Australian-based group. 

United Artists Records, riding high 
with the Spencer Davis Group, ex- 
pects “Friday On My Mind” by the 
Easybeats to follow suit quickly. 


Kaye Produces 
Pitney Single 

SAN FRANCISCO— Tommy Kaye, 
now an exclusive producer for Kama 
Sutra, has just produced the new 
Gene Pitney single, “Don’t Mean To 
Be A Preacher.” The single is cur- 
rently being distributed in the U.S.A. 
and in Europe to coincide with Pit- 
ney’s foreign tour. 

Kaye also has to his credit such 
productions as “We Can Work It 
Out,” by Maxine Brown and “Killer 
Joe,” by the Kingsmen (for the Scep- 
ter-Wand label) and “Too Young,” by 
Tommy Van (for the Amy-Mala 
label).

THE BEST OF THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL— 
Lovin’ Spoonful — Kama Sutra KLP/KLPS 8056 
The Lovin’ Spoonful, whose current singles 
“Nashville Cats” and “Darlin’ Be Home Soon” 
are both doing nicely on the Top 100, stand a 
good chance of having a monster with their latest 
LP. Among the numbers on this set are “Do You 
Believe In Magic?,” “Did You Ever Have To 
Make Up Your Mind?,” “Daydream,” and “Blues 
In The Bottle.” Watch this one go. 


THERE’S A KIND OF HUSH ALL OVER THE 
WORLD— Herman’s Hermits— MGM E/SE 4438 
Herman’s Hermits, currently riding the Top 
100 with their single “There’s A Kind Of Hush,” 
have come up with a grab bag of rockers and bal- 
lads that should leave their fans crying for more. 
Besides “There’s A Kind Of Hush” the set in- 
cludes “No Milk Today,” “Saturday’s Child,” “If 
You’re Thinkin’ What I’m Thinkin’,” and others. 
Should be a big winner here for the Hermits. 


ERIC IS HERE! — Eric Burdon & the Animals — 
MGM E/SE 4433 

Eric Burdon and the Animals cook up a batch 
of rock goodies. Among the tunes are “I Think 
It’s Gonna Rain Today,” “Help Me Girl,” and “It’s 
Been A Long Time Cornin’.” The sounds are 
blues-toned, and the group transmits a high 
voltage eontent. The Animals, always popular in 
the States, would seem to have another winner on 
their hands with this one. 


GEORGY GIRL— Seekers— Capitol ST 2431 
The Seekers swing out into a pop parade. 
Marching through is the title tune, currently high 
on the charts, “Georgy Girl,” from the flick of 
the same name. Also on the LP are “Red Rubber 
Ball” and “California Dreamin’ ” The quintet’s 
fine musicianship is evident everywhere on the 
album, and the set is likely to see lots of chart 
action. 




RAY CONNIFF’S WORLD OF HITS— Columbia 
CL 2500/CS 9300 

Ray Conniif ’s orchestra and wordless chorus in 
a bag of pop goodies. The rocking, hard-driving 
sound of “Moscow Nights” is counterbalanced on 
this disk by the smooth, romantic lyricism of 
“Try To Remember” and “Moon River.” Conniff 
and his crew demonstrate expert song-styling on 
the LP, which is likely to become a fast-moving 
sales item. 


A LATIN HAPPENING— Tony Hatch— Warner 
Bros. WS1671 

Composer - arranger - conductor Tony Hatch 
serves up an offering of pop tunes. He is noted for 
having written several of Petula Clark’s hits. On 
this set, the tracks include the title song, “A Latin 
Happening,” “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,” 
and “Guantanamera.” Hatch emplys a full, throb- 
bing rhythm section which makes for exciting 
sounds. The album should enjoy a successful sales 
run. 


BULLFIGHT! — Roger Laredo, Musical Director 
— London SP 44082 

Side One of this LP presents music played dur- 
ing a twenty-minute bullfight in Madrid. The 
drama and spectacle of the event is captured in 
phase 4 stereo. On Side Two the music of Spain 
is featured Included on this side are “Malaguena” 
and the “Ritual Fire Dance.” The double attrac- 
tion of bullfight and other Spanish music should 
draw crowds of eager record buyers. 


GUITAR U.S.A. — Tony Mottola — Command RS 
908 SD 

Tony Mottola’s superb talents as a guitarist are 
exhibited here. Included on the album are 
“Please,” “San Antonio Rose,” and “The Shadow 
Of Your Smile.” The artist hits all the styles, 
ranging from the subtlety of an unaccompanied 
solo on the classical guitar to the rugged twang 
of the big beat discotheque. The diversification of 
styles, and the versatility shown by Mottola 
should give the disk a big forward push.

LOVE ITALIAN STYLE— Connie Francis— MGM 
E/SE 4448 

Connie Francis sings a selection of Italian love 
songs. Included on the set are “Souvenir D’ltalie,” 
“Tango Delle Rose,” and “Tarantella.” The artist 
frames the efforts against a background of luxu- 
rious strings and piquant mandolins. She delivers 
each number con amore. The LP should be a real 
mover with the lark’s fans. 


TE AM ARE TOD A LA VIDA (I WILL LOVE 
YOU A LIFETIME) — Javier Solis — Columbia EX 
5179 

Javier Solis sings a group of Spanish pop tunes. 
Included on the LP are the title song, “Te Amare 
Toda La Vida,” “Vida De Bohemio,” and “Que Te 
Importa.” The artist displays an intense, melodic 
voice which is backed up by lush orchestral ar- 
rangements. The album should gather a strong 
following for the singer. 


MORE THAN A NEW DISCOVERY— Laura 
Nyro— Verve/Folkways FT/FTS 3020 

Laura Nyro, who made a lot of noise with her 
recent chart single “Wedding Bell Blues,” offers 
a groovy selection of pop tunes on her new LP. 
In addition to “Wedding Bell Blues” the set in- 
cludes “Buy And Sell,” ”‘He’s A Runner,” “Good- 
bye Joe,” “Billy’s Blues,” and others. Should be 
especially popular with the teen set. 



LOVE AFTER MIDNIGHT— Herbert Rehbein 
and his Orchestra — Decca DL 74847 

A selection of romantic tunes performed by 
Herbert Rehbein and his orchestra. Rehbein often 
composes songs with Bert Kaempfert, and several 
of them are included on this album, including the 
title number, “Love After Midnight.” Another 
outings in which Rehbein and Kaempfert had a 
hand are “Hold Back The Dawn!,” and “Lady.” 
The sound on this LP is full, rich, and clear, and 
the package should attract plenty of attention. 


THE HIT SOUND OF WILLIE MITCHELL— 
Willie Mitchell— Hi HL 12034/SHL 32934 
The versatile Willie Mitchell leads his combo 
through a dozen groovy jazz and pop numbers on 
his new LP. “Mercy,” “Treat Her Right,” 
“Searching For My Love,” “Barefootin’,” and

fans should be eager to own.

Guitarist Billy Strange has eome up with a 
rousing package of pop goodies that all his fans 
should want to hear. Included in the set are the

KNOCK ON WOOD— Eddie Floyd— Stax LP/SD 
714 

Throbbing, soul-filled R & B sounds are the 
order of the day on this package as chanter Eddie 
Floyd swings through “Raise Your Hand,” 
“Knock On Wood,” “Something You Got,” “Got 
To Make A Comeback,” and eight others. Floyd 
should have a hot sales item on his hands with 
this set, and his fans have every reason to cheer 
him to the top of the charts. 



HOMOSEXUALITY IN THE AMERICAN MALE 
—Probe ST 2652 

This album treats the delicate subject of sex 
deviation in a serious, sober manner. The LP is a 
distillation of tape recordings totalling 118 hours 
of interviews with 82 people — 64 of them homo- 
sexuals. _ The album is a journalistic endeavor 
attempting to shed light upon a controversial 
subject. The interviews are conducted in an ob- 
jective, unsensational manner, and the LP is an 
enlightening one. 


THE 

LA PLAYA 
SEXTET 

VOLUME 11 

MARDI GRAS 
MUSIC FOR 
DANCING 



ILIKAI — Arthur Lyman — HIFI SL 1035 

Arthur Lyman serves up a tempting mixture of 
Hawaiian and pop sounds on this swinging in- 
strumental set. Among the selections are “Ain t 
No Big Thing,” “Ilikai,” “Lahaina Luna,” and 
“I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Fans of 
Lyman’s sound should find what they want on 
this one. Might be some chart action on tap for 
it too. 


THE LA PLAYA SEXTET— Mardi Gras Records 
— Vol. II— LPS 5027 

The La Playa Sextet offers a package of Latin 
numbers. Among the tracks are “Carmen Bossa 
Nova,” “Pachanga Con La Playa,” and “El Loco 
Juan Po.” The group creates a bright, zestful 
sound, and the music is highly danceable. The 
album is the eleventh in a series of Mardi Gras 
Music for Dancing disks, and it is likely to be 
extremely popular. 





CONZONE D’AMORE — Ray Allen — Roulette R/ 
RS 25349 

This powerpacked LP spotlights Ray Allen in a 
performance of twelve Italian love songs. In- 
cluded in the set are “Torna,” “Statte Vicino 
Amme,” “Ddoje Stelle So’ Cadute,” and “A1 Di 
La.” Heavy middle-of-the-road sales might well 
be in store for this package, and Allen’s fans 
should want to add it to their shelves as soon as 
possible. 


I WERE A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE— Kenny 
Solms and Gail Parent — Epic FLM 13112/FLS 
15112 

Written and performed by Kenny Solms and 
Gail Parent, this set is an amusing satire on the 
world of the high school student. Included in the 
selections are “The Principal And The Home- 
room,” “Father And Son,” “The Prom,” “The 
Guidance Counselor,” and “Graduation.” Should 
find ready favor with comedy-LP fans. 



JAZZ PICKS 


CALIFORNIA DREAMING — Wes Montgomery — 
Verve V/V6 8672 

Popular jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery should 
score quickly with this powerhouse LP. Assisted 
by Don Sebesky, who conducts the orchestra for 
the set, Montgomery applies his nimble fingers to 
“Winds Of Barcelona,” “California Dreaming,” 
“Sun Down,” “Oh You Crazy Moon,” and six 
others. Watch for this one on the charts. 



MERCY, MERCY, MERCY! — Cannonball Adder- 
ley Quintet — Capitol ST 2663 

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet lays down 
six jazz efforts and the results are electric. Fea- 
tured among the tracks are the title tune, “Mercy, 
Mercy, Mercy!” which is currently high on the 
charts, “Fun,” “Games,” and “Hipadelphia.” The 
music played by the Quintet is composed b3' 
themselves, and the group’s components comple- 
ment each other brilliantly. The LP is certain 
to make new friends for the Quintet.

CLASSICAL PICKS 


SLOKOWSKI/WAGNER — Leopold Stokowski, 
conductor — London Symphony Orchestra — Lon- 
don Phase 4 SPC 21016 

Leopold Stokowski, a peerless interpreter of 
Wagner, presents five of the most famous ex- 
cerpts from “The Ring Of The Niebelung.” They 
are: “Ride Of The Valkyries,” “Forest Murmurs,” 
“Entrance Of The Gods Into Valhalla,” “Rhine 
Journey,” and “Funeral Music.” The combination 
of Wagner and Stokowski is a blending of genius, 
and classical music lovers should be anxious to 
add the album to their record libraries. 



A TRIP DOWN SUNSET STRIP— Leathercoated 
Minds— Viva V36003 

A sound painting of the sights and sounds of 
Sunset Strip in California. The voices of the 
Strip’s inhabitants and the traffic noises are re- 
corded on location, and most of the songs con- 
tained in this album got their start in the Holly- 
wood area and later became national hits. Among 
the tunes are “Eight Miles High,” “Psychotic 
Reaction,” and “Mr. Tambourine Man.” This 
interesting package should make lots of noise, 
both on the disk itself and in the marketplace. 


SIMON & GARFUNKEL — Simon and Garfunkel 
—Pickwick/33 PC/SPC 3059 

In a set given over to ten of their long-while- 
back singles recordings, Paul Simon and Art 
Garfunkel offer such numbers as “Hey School 
Girl,” “Our Song,” “That’s My Story,” “Dancin’ 
Wild,” and “Don’t Say Goodbye.” The duo’s sound 
has changed over the years, and fans should have 
an interesting time comparing this set with more 
recent Simon and Garfunkel offerings. 


BROTHER JACK McDUFF’S GREATEST HITS 
— Prestige 7481 

Some of the most impressive and exciting 
examples of the blues-filled, hard-swinging music 
of Brother Jack McDuff are included in this 
album. Among the tunes are “Rock Candy,” 
“Brother Jack,” and “The Honeydripper.” The 
artist plays the electric organ with style and 
verve, and the LP should be a sought-after item 
by jazz buffs. 


TRAMP — Lowell Fulsom — Kent 520/5020 

Jazz artist Lowell Fulsom lets loose with a 
heap of funk and drive on this free-wheeling set. 
“Black Nights,” “Tramp,” “I’m Sinkin’,” “Two 
Day Wishing,” and “Get Your Game Up Tight” 
are all numbers that should find favor with jazz 
fans, and the entire album might well be destined 
for a high spot on the charts. 


PETROUCHKA — William Steinberg and the 
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra — Command CC 
11034 SD 

Recorded on 35mm magnetic film, this dynamic 
album is devoted entirely to Igor Stravinsky’s 
music for the ballet “Petrouchka.” The quality’of 
the recording, the beauty of the Stravinsky score, 
and the masterful performance of William Stein- 
berg and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra 
are all features which should win this set an 
enthusiastic welcome among good music listeners.

Eduardo Davidson To UA 

NEW YORK — United Artists presi- 
dent Mike Stewart has just an- 
nounced the signing of Cuban singer/ 
composer Eduardo Davidson to an ex- 
clusive long-term contract with the 
label. 

Davidson has composed fifty Latin- 
American songs and a number of 
ballets and musical productions. He 
has also acted and danced in movies 
and written poems, short stories, film 
ci’iticism, and TV and radio shows. 

Initial singles and albums from 
Davidson will be l’eleased in the near 
future. Among his fii’st UA efforts 
will be “Le Frissen,” a new vocal and 
dance number which combines go-go 
rhythms with Latin-American tempos. 


Eduardo Davidson (seated) makes 
his new exclusive contract with 
United Artists Records official with 
the traditional pact-signing formality 
at the UA offices in New York. Label 
President, Mike Stewart, left, and 
Fred Reiter of Morro Music, David- 
son’s music publisher, happily super- 
vise proceedings. 


Fabien Sevitsky Dies 

NEW YORK — Fabien Sevitzky, con- 
ductor of the Greater Miami Philhar- 
monic Orchestra, died of a heart at- 
tack Feb. 2 in Athens while on tour. 
He was 73. He was to have appeared 
on Feb. 6 as guest conductor of the 
Athens State Orchestra. 

He was noted as a champion of 
American composers and attempted to 
introduce new pieces by writers in his 
adopted country in every program he 
conducted. This often led to critical 
displeasure, especially of the Hitler 
regime, when he insisted on perform- 
ing American works in Germany. He 
was at one time a double bassist with 
the Philadelphia Orchestra. 

The Russian-born conductor fled the 
USSR in 1922, migrating to Poland 
and then to the U.S., where he became 
a naturalized citizen in 1928. He was 
conductor of the Indianapolis Sym- 
phony and led the Lewisohn Stadium, 
N.Y., concerts several times. He left 
Indianapolis in 1955 to form the 
Miami Orchestra. 

He was a nephew of Serge Kousse- 
vitzky, conductor of the Boston Sym- 
phony, but shortened his name to 
avoid confusion with his uncle. 

He was manned to the foi’mer 
Maria Dormont, from whom he was 
divorced in 1956. He is survived by 
his widow, Mary Spalding, hai’pist. 


P.M. Records In 
Pittsburgh Bow 

PITTSBURGH— P. M. Records and 
Record Promotion Service has opened 
offices in Pittsburgh. The man in 
charge is Paul McGrath. McGrath 
has, for the past few years, been suc- 
cessfully involved in the restaurant 
business, but is returning to his first 
love, the record business. He formerly 
owned a one-stop rack service. He 
worked in promotion for ABC Para- 
mount and Bill Lawrence for five 
years. 

McGrath feels that with the tre- 
mendous possibilities and challenge the 
Pittsburgh market offers, the new dis- 
tributor and promotion service should 
be an extremely successful venture.

Harold Rand 
Opens New Div. 

NEW YORK — A new division, de- 
signed to fulfill the signal needs of 
clients in the music and recording 
fields, has been formed by the public 
relations firm of Harold Rand & 
Company, it has been announced by 
president Harold Rand. 

Eddie Kalish, most recently public- 
ity and advertising director for 
Greengrass/Talan Management Asso- 
ciates and GLG Productions, has been 
named to head the new operation. 

At Greengrass/Talan, Kalish was 
responsible for the creation and exe- 
cution of all promotional and related 
activities, including personal appear- 
ance tours, for such artists as Steve 
Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Diahann 
Carroll and Florence Henderson. In 
that capacity, he worked closely with 
record company and network TV 
executives, theatrical management 
and the consumer and trade press. 

Prior to joining Greengrass/Talan, 
Kalish was a member of the publicity 
department of Paramount Pictures. 
He went to Paramount following six 
years as a reporter-reviewer for 
Variety, writing first for the music, 
then the film desk. 

Assisting Kalish in his new post 
will be Martin Goldblatt, veteran pub- 
licist and present member of the Rand 
agency who was formerly executive 
assistant to Don Kirshner, president 
of Columbia-Screen Gems Music Divi- 
sion and Colgem Records. 


CBC Cites Big 
Sales Figures 

NEW YORK— Ron Terry, 23-year-old 
pi’esident of Capitol Booking Corp., 
which started with a limited capital- 
ization in April, 1966, claims that the 
agency’s billings for its initial six 
months of operation were $1,500,000 
and that the company projects its 
first year of billings as reaching 
$4,000,000. 

The roster of clients under the CBC 
banner, according to Terry, has 
grown enormously. There are now 
some 60 acts signed to the agency and 
another 65 with which it has booking 
commitments. 

“Capitol Booking’s intention from 
the beginning,” says Terry, “is to 
build the most perfect personal ap- 
pearance-type agency and when that 
is fully established, our plans call for 
expansion into TV packaging, legit- 
imate theatre and film production. 

CBC plans to continue developing 
those artists who project perform- 
ancewise in all areas of show busi- 
ness. Others will be channeled into 
different areas such as concerts, col- 
leges and lounges when they are 
ready for such activity. “Our' aim,” 
notes Terry, “is to sign established 
artists as well as ones we can develop 
and diversify.” 

To the latter end, CBC has opened 
a West Coast office and is in the proc- 
ess of establishing a Chicago base of 
operations. Among recent acquisitions 
to the agency roster are such acts as 
Tom Jones, Joe Cuba, Chris Montez 
and Eileen Fulton. 



Signing 

A1 Rosenthal, president 
of Cameo/Parkway, looks 
on from the left as 
Yvonne Baker (former 
lead with the Sensa- 
tions) and Kae Williams 
(standing, right) sign 
with the label. Williams 
will produce the lark’s 
C/P sessions.

Jacques Brel To Wind Up 
Live Performance Career 


FEELING GOOD— Hines, Hines, & Dad are shown here as toy gate 
shimmering conference table to sign a recording contract with Columbia Rec- 
ords The group’s debut effort for the diskery is “Why Must I Feel This Way / 
“Hambone.” This deck was recorded independently by Kenjo Prod. No strangers 
to show biz Hines, Hines, & Dad are most noted for their comedy song n dance 
£$£Z AW, from left, are: Dad Hines Maurice Hines, Gene Weiss of 
Columbia A&R, Harry Ascola of Kenjo, and Gregory Hines. 


NEW YORK— Belgian singer Jacques 
Brel gave his final live performance 
before American audiences last week- 
end (11, 12) according to a report in 
the N.Y. Times. An international 
celebrity for several years, Brel pro- 
claimed his intention to finish up 
engagements at Carnegie Hall (11) 
and Washington (12) and to conclude 
his engagements abroad by spring. 
From that time on, he will devote all 
of his musical energies toward song- 
writing and records. He presently re- 
cords for Liberty. 

His plan to cease personal appear- 
ances was evidently formed several 
years ago, regardless of the fact that 
he might lose his rapport with his 
public as a result. 

“The real rapport,” says Brel, is 
not with the public, it is with the 
people. The public is a false notion. 
The rapport one has with the public 
is a monologue. With people there is 
a dialogue. Besides, the writing, the 
idea, is the most important thing . . 

He plans to spend half of his future 
years at his present home in Paris, 
and the other half sailing. 


Riddle Signs With Liberty

sions for two new Riddle disks, one a 
single, and the other an LP entitled 
“The Bright And The Beautiful.” Both 
records are scheduled for release in 
the immediate future. 


B'nai Brith Chapter 
Formed In Windy City 


CHICAGO— A Chicago chapter of the 
music and performing arts in B nai 
Brith was formed recently in Windy 
City by a steering committee consist- 
ing of Morrie Price (Metro Record 
Dist. Co.), Ben Arden (director of the 
orchestra in the Empire Room of the 
Palmer House), Ed Yalowitz (Royal 
Disc Dist.), Earl Glicken, freelance 
record promotion rep, and Lee Brooks 
of Cash Box. 

Price advised that he is sending 
announcements out to interested par- 
ties, to attend the first meeting of 
this chapter, Tuesday evening, (6:00 
PM), February 28, in the Belmont 
Room of the Pick Congress Hotel. 

The entire steering committee feels 
that there will be an exceptional early 
enrollment among the music people 
in this area. Any further information 
can be obtained by contacting any one 
of the members of this steering com- 
mittee.

general manager, Bud Dain, the 
label’s marketing department will go 
all out on Riddle. “We plan to capital- 
ize on his appeal as an artist,” said 
Peirce. 

Riddle, who is also active in motion 
pictures and television, recently com- 
pleted work on the score for the Para- 
mount-Howard Hawks film, Eldo- 
rado,” and is now musical director of 
the new “Smothers Brothers” TV 
show.

NEW YORK: 

Judy Collins (Elektra) is set to 
perforin at the Village Theatre on 
Feb. 22nd for the benefit of WBAI- 
FM-New York. Tom Paxton, the Mit- 
chell Trio, and Patrick Sky will also 
appear at the benefit show. The pro- 
gram will consist of theatre songs and 
folk songs. . . . Judy, who is currently 
represented by “Hard-Lovin’ Loser” 
and the “In My Life” LP, is also our 
east coast girl of the week. 

Marty Thau says that “Love You 
So Much” by the New Colony Six, 
“This Precious Time” by Terry Knight 
and the Pack, and “When I Stop Lov- 
ing You” by George Jackson are all 
doing well. Marty also says “reaction 
at this stage is fantastic on the new 
Sen. Bobby deck, ‘Mellow Yellow,’ it’s 
breaking all over.” 

Erroll Garner returns to Carnegie 
Hall after an absence of eight-years 
on Feb. 18th. His last appearance in 
the hall was on Oct. 16th, 1959. Since 
that time he hasn’t played a concert 
in New York. 

Pearl Bailey is sked’ed for a Phil- 
harmonic Hall appearance Feb. 17th. 
She will appear in a musical review 
that will include Louis Bellson’s or- 
chestra. 

The Vagrants will introduce their 
first release on the Atlantic label via 
Bruce Morrow’s ABC-TV’er on Feb. 
25th. . . . the Myddle Class performed 
on a bill with the Animals at Hunter 
Coll, last Fri. (10th). . . . Phil Ochs 
and the Youngbloods team up for 
Hunter’s next concert scene, Feb. 25th. 

Dan Wright of Ann Wright Rep- 
resentatives informs us that the 
Hangmen, whose latest Monument LP 
is “Bittersweet,” are set for a string 
of college concerts. 


RECORD 


The opening of “The Harold Arlen 
Songbook” has been postponed until 
Feb. 28th at Stage 73, 321 East 73rd 
St. Originally scheduled for a Feb. 
16th premiere, the musical pastiche 
of seventy Arlen songs is being de- 
ferred to give the company additional 
rehearsal time. Pamela Hall, Jerry 
Holmes, Marcia Mohr, Ray Ramirez, 
and Major Wiley comprise the cast. 

A1 Altman says “Everybody Needs 
Help” by Jimmy Holiday looks like 
a “biggie” with immediate acceptance 
in many markets. The new O’Jays 
deck, “Working On Your Case,” looks 
like a “solid contender for this year’s 
top honors.” 

The Dirty Shames outing of 


For A Blue Lady.” 

Merrec’s Jerry Ross has noted the 
following decks as being among those 
moving: “All,” Les McCann; “Califor- 
nia Night,” Lesley Gore; “I Dig You 
Baby,” Jerry Butler; and “Frustra- 
tion,” the Painted Ship. 

George Nardello is currently work- 
ing the New York area with the 
Varitone (an electric sax). His latest 
deck is on the Spontaneous label. 

The Young Rascals just played an 
Ed Sullivan TV’er Feb. 12th. The 
group recently played Brooklyn’s 
Action City disco on Jan. 27 and 28. 
They set a house record at the night 
spot with a reported 2-night gross of 
$32,000.

DIRTY SHAMES

“Coconut Grove” on Philips looks like 
it may be a real big one according 
to Art Wayne, who stopped by to tell 
us about it. 

Charles Aznavour will make his 
only New York concert appearance 
this year at Carnegie Hall on Feb. 
25th. The Sid Bernstein presentation 
is called “The World Of Charles Az- 
navour” and will begin at midnight. 

Val Anthony bows on LIMS Records 
with Sy Oliver. It’s two oldies; “Stars 
Fell On Alabama” and “Red Roses 


Ron Weisner (at Metro) points out 
that “Who Needs Forever,” by Astrud 
Gilberto on Verve, “Impressions With 
Syvonne” by Don Grady on Canter- 
bury, and Pat Lewis’ “Warning” on 
Solid Hit are all moving well. 

Word has it that Hilltop’s Bobby 
Rogona is casting an eye after Wild 
Thing and the Violations. Could there 
be a contract in the offing, hummmn ? 

The Outsiders have a new Capitol 
single. It’s called “I’ll Give You Time 
(To Think It Over)” and it may be 



able to capitalize on the group’s 
while-back “Time Won’t Let Me.” 
Fans of Vanguard’s Patrick Sky 
will soon be able to see him in a con- 
servation flick entitled, “Down The 
Road.” The cast includes a whole 
bunch of kids who roam around doing 
all sorts of conservationary things. 
Sky sings and appears in the flick. 

Jimmy McHugh, ASCAP board 
member, is busy covei-ing the Wash- 
ington front on new copyright and 
juke box bills. Ed Ames’ new record 
to follow his waxing of “My Cup 
Runneth Over,” will be the Jimmy 
McHugh-penned, “Don’t Blame Me.” 
Shiela Kent has pointed out that the 
Art Wayne “Automated Man” effort 
on the Smash label is getting “better 
reaction all the time.” 

Hermione Gingold stopped by the 
Cash Box offices to direct our atten- 
tion to her first single deck “Does 
Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor 
On The Bed Post Overnight?” on 
Cameo. The lark was accompanied by 
Bob Reno, producer of the session, 
and Marty Thau, C/P promo rep. 

The Lettermen have started the ’67 
season with a college concert tour 
that will take them to over 45 differ- 
ent colleges throughout the USA in 
the first 3-months of the year. The 
Capitol group will interrupt their tour 
for 10-days in Mar. to cut a new LP 
in L.A. 

Public relations man Mike Gersh- 
man, has joined the Connie De Nave 
office. 

HOLLYWOOD: 

At the turn of the century Thomas 
Edison attempted to mate a pair of 
his inventions — the phonograph and 
the movie camera. Later he decided 
that the combination had no future.

Cash Box — February 18, 1967 



Cash Box RECORD RAMBLINGS 



estimate was last week’s press item 
from Robert H. O’Brien, president of 
MGM, concerning Elvis Presley’s 
gross on seven films for the motion 
picture firm — 78 million — a wondrous 
but not astonishing figure. (We’re re- 
minded by RCA Victor’s west coast 
publicist Grelun Landon that this 
bedazzling total does not even include 
receipts from popcorn concessions.) 
For Presley, along with Frank Sina- 
tra, Bing Crosby and Doris Day make 
up the four most fearsome gifts of 
disks to flicks. No other artists, first 
to star on records, have approached 
the international box office appeal of 
these three kings and a queen. 

There are, of course, a multitude of 
talents who have been successful in 
both mediums but did not first gain 
fame on records — Fred Astaire (gen- 
erally credited as having introduced 
more standards than any other art- 
ist), Dick Powell (former vaudeville 
MC and saxophonist), Mario Lanza 
(groomed by MGM as a star even 
before his first film), A1 Jolson (Hol- 
lywood’s first musical hero), Jeanette 
MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, Deanna 
Durbin, Judy Garland, Ethel Waters, 
Lena Home and, we’re sure, we’ve ne- 
glected to recall a dozen more. Less 
successful disks to flick talents include 
almost as imposing an array of artists 
— Kate Smith, Ruth Etting, Rosemary 
Clooney, Johnnie Ray, Eddie Fisher, 
Connie Francis, Gordon MacRae, Per- 
ry Como, Patti Page, Peggy Lee, 
Grace Moore, Tony Martin, Dinah 
Shore, Dick Haymes and Cliff Ed- 
wards. All have worked before cam- 
eras and, for multiple reasons, never 
approached or sustained the box office 
charisma of their disk counter sales. 

Dean Martin is the most likely can- 
didate to join the three kings and a 


queen in this marriage of golden plat- 
ters to silver sci’een. A kind of joker 
in the pack, he continues to explode 
on several fronts — most recently as 
Matt Helm, his most successful screen 
role. The Beatles, of course, have 
made enormous strides in their first 
two film efforts. As a four man team 
— or even separated — they should en- 
dure. Bobby Darin, nominated for an 
academy award as a supporting play- 
er, is the only disk star who has also 
composed a song that contended for 
an Oscar. 

But there’s also a list of hopefuls 
which Hollywood has so far managed 
to neglect — a demi tasse fille out of 
Epsen, England named Petula Clark, 


meanwhile it’s Crosby, Sinatra, Day 
and Presley— not merely disk talents 
who have fared well in this extrava- 
gant town in tinsel. They remain the 
superstars of a sometimes imaginable 
and memorable art. . . . 

Our “West Coast Girl of the Week” 
is petite blonde, blue eyed Karen Sar- 
gent, no neophyte to the show biz 
world. Her uncle is Vincent Sardi, 
owner of the theatrical bistro in N.Y.

an almost sure bet for stardom in 
films. And Anita Bryant who, we 
have always felt, is a likely successor 
to Doris Day’s thespian throne. Or 
Bill Cosby. Or Herb Alpert. 

And, in a special category, we 
might also include a former D. J. 
(though he abhors the nomenclature) 
Bob Crane who has recently signed 
for his first starring role opposite 
Elke Sommer in U.A.’s “Wicked 
Dreams of Paula Schultz”. In the

b/w “If It Could Be Me”. 

Record producers Charles Greene

NAMM Meets In 5 Cities 

CHICAGO — Two outstanding national 
experts on salesmanship and five re- 
gional bank executives will be fea- 
tured at the annual series of sales- 
management seminars sponsored by 
the National Association of Music 
Merchants in five cities starting Feb. 
19 and continuing through April 16. 

“Doing Business In A Competitive 
Market” will be the theme of the 
NAMM sessions which are a prelude 
to the big annual Music Show sched- 
uled for Chicago’s Conrad Hilton 
Hotel June 25 to 29. Speaking at all 
seminars in Atlanta, Dallas, Philadel- 
phia, San Francisco and Chicago will 
be Jack Schwartz, who is a nationally 
known authority on the use of the 
telephone in selling, and Les Giblin, a 
top authority in the field of human re- 
lations and its application to business. 

In addition to Schwartz and Giblin, 
a prominent local banker will address 
each regional luncheon session on eco- 
nomic prospects for 1967. 

“How To Get More Business On The 
Telephone” is the subject of Jack 
Schwartz’s sales seminar in the morn- 
ing sessions of the regional meetings 
and he will demonstrate in a workshop 
how the telephone can be used as a 
potent sales tool. Schwartz will not 
only demonstrate how to use the 
phone but also cover such areas as 
how to get more prospects, increase 
sales volume, improve customer rela- 
tions and increase commission checks 
for sales personnel. 

Les Giblin, originator and conductor 
of the Les Giblin Clinic on Human 
Relations, will speak at all the after- 
noon sessions and cover management’s 
approach to the “human eauation,” 
demonstrating how “skill with peo- 
ple” can pay off in sales volume, 
profits, productivity, emnloyee rela- 
tions and general morale in music 
stores.

Capitol Awards Two 
MG's To Sweeps Winners 

HOLLYWOOD — At a presentation 
held recently at the British Motor Car 
Corp.’s Compton headquarters, win- 
ners of Capitol’s “Big British Wheels 
Sweepstakes” were awarded a pair of 
1967 MGB sports cars. 

The winners were high school stu- 
dent Randy Muir of Placentia, Calif., 
and record retailer George Denno of 
“Denno’s” in Garden Grove, Calif. 

A. A. E. Franklyn, British Consul 
General; Ernie Rodriguez, BMC Man- 
ager; and Capitol’s sales representa- 
tive Bill Sloan were on hand to make 
the presentation to the winning con- 
sumer and the dealer from whom the 
entry blank was obtained. 

The British Wheels consumer/dealer 
sweepstakes was launched last year as 
part of a national promotion for four 
Capitol albums by Peter & Gordon,

General (second from left), and Ernie

ager (second from right), present 
keys to 1967 MGB sports cars to

Denno, owner of “Denno’s” record 
store in Garden Grove, Calif., and 
Muir, a high school student, were the 
winners in Capitol’s and MGB’s “Big 
British Wheels Sweepstakes.” 1,500 
other prizes were given besides the 
two grand prizes. 

David & Jonathan, Chad & Jeremy 
and the Hollyridge Strings. 

Consumers picked up entry blanks 
at their dealers’ stores; wrote their 
favorite tune title from any one of 
the four albums on the blanks; and 
forwarded entry blanks with dealers’ 
names to the Captol Tower. Some 
200,000 entries were received during 
the two-month period. A full-scale ad- 
vertising and merchandising program, 
including MGB floor/window mer- 
chandisers, MGB counter contest 
blank holders, window streamers, 
radio, newspaper and co-op ads, 
backed the 60-day contest. 

In addition to grand prize winners 
Muir and Denno, 1,5000 other contest 
participants won prizes ranging from 
Capitol phonographs to albums and 
guitars. 

The contest marked the first tie-in 
between Capitol and British Motors.

Sound,” which mushroomed into a 
new bag for the teen set. Later, the 
pair established an even greater rap- 
port with the youth of the nation 
when they popularized the “Drag City 
Sound.” 

The pair previously recorded for 
Liberty and, more recently, their own 
label, J&D. 

Jan and Dean compose much of the 
material they use, and Jan produces 
and arranges all of their recordings. 
In addition, they manage to pursue 
their education despite the heavy de- 
mands of a successful musical career. 
Jan is a student at the California 
College of Medicine, and Dean is en- 
rolled at the University of Southern 
California (USC). 


Lear Jet Forms 
Exec Marketing Group 

DETROIT — To provide required man- 
agement depth and direction for ex- 
panding marketing opportunities 
ahead, the Stereo Division of Lear Jet 
has formed an Executive Marketing 
Group. 

John V. Titsworth, Lear Jet vice- 
president and general manager of the 
Division, said four experienced Stereo 
Division Marketing executives will be 
reporting directly to his office, effec- 
tive immediately. They are Joel M. 
Rowley, manager of distribution; Paul 
Featherstone, manager of Contract 
Sales; F. Clark Stephens, product 
manager, Cartridges; and William S. 
Pflueger, Jr., premium sales manager. 

Concurrently, James R. Gall has re- 
signed as division vice-president of 
Marketing for personal reasons. Tits- 
worth said a successor will not be 
named immediately. 


Warner Bros. Inks 
Jon & Sandra Steele 

LOS ANGELES — Jon and Sandra 
Steele have signed a recording con- 
tract with Warner Bros, records after 
several years’ absence from the re- 
cording field. First disk, “There Isn’t 
Any Other Way” b/w “Sunshine And 
Sunday” will be released Feb. 13. Re- 
cording was produced by Gene Nash 
who coordinated “Day For Decision” 
for Warner Bros. The artists are re- 
membered for their hit single, “My 
Happiness.” 


Caballe Cuts LP In 
Rome, Flies To NY 

Montserrat Caballe, the Spanish 
soprano, arrived in New York from 
Rome recently after completing an 
album of operatic arias at RCA Vic- 
tor’s Italiana Studios. 

On arriving in the U. S. for her 
first appearance of the year, Mme 
Caballe learned that her initial full- 
length opera recording for RCA yic- 
tor, Donizetti’s “Lucrezia Borgia,’ 
which is a January release, is already 
selling well. 

Madame Caballe had flown to Rome 
from her home in Barcelona to_ record 
“The Unknown Verdi,” in which she 
performs arias from little-known 
Verdi operas. 

Madame Caballe’s first American 
performance will be in the title role of 
Puccini’s “Tosca” on January 31 with 
the Philadelphia Lyric Opera. 

Her first New York appearance will 
be with the Metropolitan Opera As- 
sociation on Feb. 8 as Leonora in 
Verdi’s “II Trovatore.” She will repeat 
this role and then sing several per- 
formances as Desdemona in Verdi’s 
“Otello.” 

Other plans for the prima donna in 
1967 include a summer recording of 
Verdi’s “La Traviata.” Madame 
Caballe has been selected to open the 
second season of the New Metropoli- 
tan Opera House in Lincoln Center in 
“La Traviata” in the fall, and RCA 
Victor plans to release the album to 
coincide with her fall appearances as 
Violetta.

Revere & Raiders 
Achieve Gold Record 

NEW YORK— Paul Revere and the 
Raiders, one of Columbia Records’ 
hottest pop groups, have achieved a 
Gold Record for their best-selling LP 
“Just Like Us.” The highly coveted 
award signifies sales in excess of one 
million dollars, as certified by the 
Record Industry Association of Amer- 
ica (RIAA). 

“Just Like Us” contains the group’s 
single, “Just Like Me,” as well as 
“Steppin’ Out,” “Baby, Please Don’t 
Go,” “Night Train” and “I Can’t Get 
No Satisfaction.” 

Since signing with Columbia Records 
early in 1965, Paul Revere and the 
Raiders have recorded a consistent 
stream of hit singles and LP’s. This, 
the quintet’s first Gold Record, comes 
to them at a time when they are rid- 
ing high on the charts with a single, 
“Good Thing.” They have recently re- 
corded two LP’s, “The Spirit of ’67,” 
currently on the charts, and “Midnight 
Ride.” 

Paul Revere and the Raiders regular- 
ly showcased on the Dick Clark day- 
time network television show, “Where 
the Action Is.” In addition, they make 
frequent guest appearances on top TV 
programs including “American Band- 
stand,” “Hullabaloo,” “The Tonight 
Show,” “Shindig” and “The Lloyd 
Thaxton Show.” 

During 1966, at the request of the 
United States government, Paul Re- 
vere and the Raiders made a tour of a 
number of Job Corps Camps through- 
out the country and also appeared in 
Santo Domingo, capital of the Domin- 
ican Republic. 


NA MM Offers Wage 
& Hour Brochure 

CHICAGO — A detailed guide to the 
new Federal wage and hour laws for 
the use of music stores has been pub- 
lished by the National Association of 
Music Merchants. 

The valuable easy-reference NAMM 
Retail Wage and Hour Handbook is a 
precise step-by-step manual on every 
detail of new rules and regulations of 
the Fair Labor Standards Act as ap- 
plied to the music business. The law’s 
new coverage as legislated by the last 
Congress extends to many music re- 
tailers not formerly under its pro- 
visions and the new Wage and Hour 
Handbook provides an important 
guide to music merchants in comply- 
ing with the law. 

The law will be further imple- 
mented in two years to extend cover- 
age to the majority of music stores, 
which will find the Wage and Hour 
Handbook an indispensable aid in em- 
ployee relations. 

Publication of the new handbook 
was a major project of the NAMM in 
the last several months in preparing 
its member stores for the inception of 
extended coverage by the wage-hour 
law on February 1, 1967, to cover 
stores with annual gross sales of 
$500,000 or more. In two years the 
law will be further extended to cover 
businesses with yearly sales of $250,- 
000 or more.

Liberty Opens Tape Dup Plant In Omaha 


OMAHA, NEBRASKA — With con- 
struction completed on the spacious, 
$500,000 three level building housing 
LTD (Liberty Tape Duplicating), a 
division of Liberty Records, label and 
plant last week hosted a preview here 
for friends in the trade. Out of town 
guests, numbering about 50, included 
reps from record manufacturers, tape, 
electronics, packaging, printing and 
plastics firms along with trade press 
and city officials who viewed what 
Ronald Bledsoe, who co-ordinated the 
project, termed, “undoubtedly the 
most modern, best equipped and most 
efficient plant in the business.” 

Specifically For Tape 

New structure, heralded as the first 
to be built specifically for tape dupli- 
cating, encompasses 17,500 square 
feet with ample office and plant area 
in addition to space for research and 
development. More than 37,000 cubic 
feet is available for inventory storage 
and shipping with an additional mez- 
zanine level scheduled to be added 
in the near future. 

Liberty’s 60 employees utilize spe- 
cially designed high speed equipment, 
including five master playback units 
and fifty 4 and 8 track duplicators, 
automatic label and shrink wrap ma- 
chinery as well as a modern conveyor 
system which, in effect, produces an 
image of a continuous cartridge be- 
ginning at the upper level and con- 
cluding with finished product pack- 
aged and ready for shipment at street 
level, just across from Omaha’s main 
post office. Thirty machines dispense 
8 track cartridges while 20 produce 4 
track and reel to reel. Firm is also 
running and testing cassette which, 
according to general manager Leo 
Colvin, can now be “produced with a 
half hour’s notice.” Colvin and chief 
engineer Stan Nick, who initially 


founded the firm under the name of 
TDC Electronics some five years ago 
at another location, retained their 
positions when the company was ac- 
quired in April, ’66. 

Outside Accounts 

In addition to the production of 
Liberty product, LTD custom (and 
Colvin emphasizes the last word) du- 
plicates for several other record firms 
— reel to reel for Warners-Reprise and 
Dot, with cartridges and reel to reel 
for Music Tapes, Stereo Tape Inc., 
Stereo Devices, Word, Nivico (a Jap- 
anese label) and Double Shot Records. 

Bledsoe estimates that about $500,- 
000 has already been invested in the 
new facility, adding that this is a con- 
servative figure. “We’re stressing 
quality — every tape tested before la- 
beling and checked after shrink 
wrapping. And, although we’re pres- 
ently equipped to duplicate between 
18 and 20 thousand units a day, 
we’re not making any grandiose state- 
ments about producing enough re- 
corded tape to go three times around 
the globe.” Plant is presently work- 
ing two shifts, duplicating between 
10 to 12 thousand units daily. And 
offering a complete package — from 
Ampex and Magna-Tech mastering to 
labeling, wrapping, shipping and, if 
requested, inventory control. 

Colvin suggests that there’s going 
to be enough demand to go around for 
all systems — existing tracks, cassette 
etc. Tape should not be confused or 
equated with record speeds. The con- 
sumer is, more and more, tape ori- 
ented. One of the reasons, for ex- 
ample, why reel to reel sales have 
improved. “We’re fortunate to have 
the best engineer in the country 
(Stan Nick) and we’re flexible. We’re 
ready and able to convert to any ex- 
isting or projected duplicating meth- 
od. You name it — we’ll tape it.” 


Ampex Sees Big Tape Sales For ’67 


NEW YORK — Sales of stereo tapes 
for home and auto listening will rise 
from approximately $45,000,000 in 
1966 to more than $100,000,000 in 
1967, according to Donald V. Hall, 
general manager of Ampex Stereo 
Tapes, largest producer of recorded 
tapes. 

Hall said the most dramatic in- 
creases will be made by cartridge 
tapes primarily for auto use. At the 
same time, traditional open-reel tapes 
for high quality home listening will 
also enjoy substantial gains. 

Sparked by auto industry promo- 
tion, popular new cartridge tapes will 
account for approximately 65 percent 
of 1967 industry sales, according to 
the Ampex exec. 

“Automobile stereo systems have 
contributed greatly to increased gen- 
eral interest in tapes,” Hall said. “In- 
dustry sources estimate that from 
300,000 to 400,000 of the automobiles 
sold in 1967 will include eight-track 
stereo tape playback units. Auto 


stereo systems added after purchase 
will add another 650,000 four-track or 
eight-track playback units. 

“Cartridge tapes will also find in- 
creasing use in the home,” the Ampex 
executive said. “A number of manu- 
facturers are offering home cartridge 
units compatible with auto playback 
systems. While sound quality is not 
equal to that of open-reel tapes, 
cartridge tapes are entirely satisfac- 
tory on the road and for casual home 
listening.” 

Ampex Stereo Tapes offers more 
than 1,600 selections of all types from 
47 recording labels. The new Ampex 
cartridge tape catalog, begun in mid- 
1966, already has more than 200 selec- 
tions from such labels as London, 
MGM, Verve, A & M and Vanguard. 
Substantial additions will be made 
during 1967. 

The Ampex Stereo Tapes duplicat- 
ing center is located in Elk Grove 
Village, Illinois.

ACCESSORY CALLED MUSIC: Among the 28 exhibitors of tape cartridges and 
auto units to play them at last week’s National Auto Accessories Exposition at

Cap Buys Cartridges 
From Audio Devices 

NEW YORK — Capitol Records has 
signed a contract with Audio Devices 
for 8-track stereo cartridges, it was 
announced recently. 

The record company selected 
“Audiopak” cartridges following en- 
gineering: and field testing, accord- 
ing to William T. Hack, Audio De- 
vices president. The firm is credited 
with being the only manufacturer of 
both continuous-loop cartridges and 
the special tape they require. 

In addition to Capitol, Columbia is 
also using “Audiopak” 8-track car- 
tridges to issue selections from its 
catalogs of popular and classical mu- 
sic.

ers and other areas where this type 
of recording offers advantages.

Chickenman Flies Off 
On Promotion Tour 

NEW YORK — Atco Records is putting 
a high flying promotion behind its 
brand new Chickenman LP, “The Best 
Of Chickenman.” Firm has launched a 
campaign that encompasses radio and 
newspaper advertising as well as 
saturation mailing of Chickenman 
LP’s and EP’s to radio outlets 
throughout the country. Atco is also 
supplying its distributors with 
bumper stickers advertising the al- 
bum, that read “Chickenman — Keeps 
Peace Fights Crime.” 

In addition, Atco album sales chief 
Len Sachs has set up a national pro- 
motional tour for Chickenman to visit 
radio outlets throughout the East 
wearing his full Chickenman crime 
fighting costume. Chickenman — billed 
as the greatest crime fighter the 
world has ever known — first came to 
public attention via the daily serials 
about his remarkable career on radio 
outlets throughout the country. It is 
expected that he will meet a warm 
reception at the outlets. He will fly 
from city to city under his own power, 
according to Sachs, and when he is 
finished visiting stations in the East 
he will make a tour of West Coast 
stations. 


BMI In 'Mischief'ish Push 

NEW YORK — BMI has distributed 
7000 press kits to Disc Jockeys, key 
personnel at Radio & TV stations, 
and newspaper columnists to promote 
the current off-Broadway hit, “Man 
With A Load Of Mischief.” Since the 
show opened in Nov., it has been the 
object of critical acclaim and the kit 
is made up of various reviews and 
other stories which have appeared in 
newspapers, magazines and trade 
papers. 

Based on a 1924 play by British 
drama critic Ashley Dukes, the show 
was revised by Ben Tarver & John 
Clifton. Kapp has released the orig- 
inal cast, and, because of heavy de- 
mand for sheet music, Scope Music 
has prepared a music folio (“Vocal 
Selections From ‘Man With A Load 
Of Mischief’ ”) containing eight songs 
from the show.

Monument Releases 
2 Aznavour Albums 

HOLLYWOOD — Monument Records 
is releasing two newly-recorded and 
recently-acquired LP’s by French 
artist Charles Aznavour this week (6), 
with the issuance of the French “Le 
Grande Charles! Aznavour” and 
Spanish “Canta En Espanol.” 

“We are very enthused about the 
results of the acceptance of the first 
Aznavour LP we issued,” said Fred 
Foster, president of the Nashville- 
Hollywood label, “and therefore re- 
quested Bobby Weiss, our director of 
the international division, to nego- 
tiate for additional Aznavour re- 
leases.” Weiss, working with both 
Pathe-Marconi and Disques Barclay 
of France, secured the French and 
Spanish language titles by Azna- 
vour and points out, “These are all 
newly-recorded by Charles, having 
been cut within the past two years as 
he (Charles) made special arrange- 
ments with Pathe-Marconi to destroy 
all the old matrices he cut for the 
Ducretet-Thomson label providing they 
agreed to issue the new versions of 
the same songs, which of course, they 
did.” 

Tying in with the current Aznavour 
tour here, Monument set a special 
Spanish-slanted campaign in San Juan 
via their licensee in Puerto Rico, Dis- 
tribudora Nacional de Discos and 
blanket coverage of the many radio 
and TV outlets with the Spanish as 
well as the new French LP’s. Monu- 
ment gave Puerto Rico the premiere 
launching of Aznavour’s “Canta en 
Espanol” and will now offer it to their 
other USA distribs, concentrating on 
the Spanish record markets in New 
York City, Miami, Los Angeles, etc. 

As a result of these two latest 
Aznavour LP’s, Monument now fea- 
tures four recordings of interest to 
the Aznavour-minded public, includ- 
ing “The Very Best of Aznavour” 
and “In The Aznavour Mood,” with 
the latter featuring Henry Byrs, 
pianist for Aznavour, in a 12-tune 
treatment for piano and big orches- 
tra of all-time Aznavour song hits. 


Bornwin Productions 
Follows Busy Schedule 

NEW YORK — Stan Catron, general 
manager of Bornwin Productions, re- 
ports that Bornwin Music has ac- 
quired the American publishing rights 
to “Mai, Mai, Mai Valentina,” one 
of the 12 winning selections from last 
year’s San Remo festival. Negotia- 
tions for the rights were completed 
with Sugar Music, which publishes 
the tune abroad, amongst bidding 
from several other American pubber- 
ies. Jill Williams, a Bornwin staffer, 
will write English lyrics for the song. 

Catron has just reurned from a 
promo trek through the New England 
states on behalf of the album, “Se- 
bastian Cabot, Actor, Reads Bob 
Dylan, Poet.” Bornwin Productions 
produced the LP, which has been 
issued by M-G-M. 

While in Boston, Catron signed the 
Rondells & Cathy to an exclusive 
recording contract. The group will be 
recorded in the near future. 

Bornwin has added three new pro- 
ducers. Bob Susser has an upcoming 
A&R chore for Laurie Records. Carl 
Hogan has recorded Bobby Duke for 
M-G-M, and the team of Gately & 
Pedricks will helm a session for Born- 
win Records. 


Docko Launches Label 

WOODBURY, N.Y.— Joe Docko has 
announced that he has launched a 
new record label, Solid Sounds. The 
label’s first releases, scheduled for 
late Feb., will be “Frustration” b/w 
“Running Through The Night,” and 
“Break Song #1” b/w “Break Song 
#2.” Also to be taped is an instru- 
mental called “Mind Excursion.” 

The above songs will be played by 
a rock-blues group named the Mystic 
Tide. 


When Aznavour returns to France 
in March, after his current six-months 
USA p.a. swing, he will etch 12 more 
updated versions of his vintage hits 
for release by Monument as part of 
the pact Weiss concluded with Pathe- 
Marconi and Aznavour.

backed by a national advertising, 
publicity, and promotion campaign. 


Capitol 'Probes' Homosexuals 

HOLLYWOOD — “Homosexuality” is 
the topic chosen for the newest — and 
fourth album — in Capitol’s “Probe” 
documentary /news series. 

The LP, produced by journalist 
Lawrence Schiller, is an in-depth 
study of the male homosexual and 
the world in which he lives. 

Schiller spent several months (118 
hours of tape) conducting interviews 
with 82 different people, 64 of them 
homosexuals, in cities throughout the 
country. 

Aside from medical and sociological 
authorities, the producer also worked 
with homophile organizations in five 
major U.S. cities: New York, Los 
Angeles, Washington, D.C., Chicago 
and San Francisco. Interviews ob- 
tained range from hours of discussion 
with many homosexuals, to taping of 
church discussions. 

Purpose of the album, as in previous 
“Probe” packages, was to provide 
an in-depth study of the problem. 
“Homosexuality” also explains and 
clears up the many misconceptions I

Album from the 
explosive new film... 

“HURRY SUNDOWN” 
L0C/LS04133 

Filled with the powerful and 
emotion-charged music that show* 
cases the dynamic theme of Otto 
Preminger’s widely discussed 
motion picture starring Michael 
Caine, Jane Fonda, John Phillip 
Law, Diahann Carroll, Robert 
Hooks, Faye Dunaway and Burgess 
Meredith, this recording is sure 
to be a fast mover. “Hurry Sun* 
down” will be supported by 
heavy consumer advertising and 
eye-catching promotional material.

Long Arms Reaching Into 
Pop, International Areas 


NASHVILLE — One of the giants in 
the country field, the Hubert Long 
complex has laid out a long range 
timetable which calls for expansion 
into pop and international markets 
for 1967. 

In a statement made after the turn 
of the new year, Long, who presides 
over both the Hubert Long Talent 
Agency and Moss Rose Publications, 
stated that “the same motivations 
which have boosted country music 
beyond the status of a provincial folk 
form into national prominence is still 
at work. 1967 will see not only a con- 
tinued international growth of the 
Nashville pi-oduct, but a broadening 
of base for the music firms who have 
built their reputations on country 
music.” Long further pointed out that 
Moss Rose exec Audie Ashworth has 
cemented a liaison with West Coast 
producer Snuff Garrett in order to in- 
volve the Music City firm more deeply 
in the pop-rock field. The publishing 
house will also enhance the string 
of European and Scandinavian reps 
which were retained last year. Fur- 


thermore, Long’s international setup 
will represent Don Bowman’s Parody 
Music house, as well as Long’s satel- 
lite companies. Ashworth also looks 
forward to increased activity from 
Husky Music, Pawnee Rose and Stal- 
lion Music, as well as extensive use of 
Marijohn and Bucky Wilkin of Buck- 
horn Music. Bill Justis’ share of 
Buckhorn was purchased by Long last 
year. 

The increased pop music industry 
in the firm’s publishing division will 
also be reflected in the Hubert Long 
Talent Agency. Associate John Owen 
is expected to return to the firm in 
late January, thereby bringing the 
executive staff to three. Owen will 
work with new talent while Grover 
“Shorty” Lavender will bear the 
firm’s package and club activities. 
Louie Dunn will beam his efforts 
toward increasing the firm’s consider- 
able share of the fair and exposition 
dollar. Long stressed that HLTA will 
be on the look-out for new performers 
in both the pop and country idioms in 
1967.

Ifield Returning To America For 
Sullivan TV, Nashville Sessions 


NEW YORK — England’s Frank Ifield 
will return to the United States for 
his fifth appearance on the CBS-TV 
Ed Sullivan Show Apr. 16, according 
to Bob Dawes of Acuff-Rose Artists 
Corporation, Ifield’s agency here. 

The British singer, who spent his 
earlier years in Australia, is associ- 
ated exclusively with Hickory Records 
in. the United States, where he has 
enjoyed substantial chart activity 
since joining the label last year. 

During the forthcoming American 
visit, Ifield will visit Nashville to re- 
cord a group of sides. He is also ex- 
pected to make a series of personal 
appearances throughout the country 
during his trip. 

Although Ifield’s impact in America 
since joining Hickory has been parti- 
cularly strong in the country field, he 
has scored consistently in the British 
pop charts with his Nashville-re- 
corded discs. Most recently, his single 
of “Call Her Your Sweetheart” hit 
the top 20 in all four major British 
charts. 

The same recording has been a 
major country chart item in the 
States, and his current album, “Tale 
Of Two Cities,” also entered the coun- 


A GREAT NEW LP!

SPECIAL”

try LP charts here. The Sullivan en- 
gagement, however, is expected to 
consolidate his already strong pop fol- 
lowing. Ifield had a giant pop entry 
here several years ago with “I Re- 
member You.” 

Hickory has just released a brand 
new Ifield single of the Don Gibson 
tune, “A Stranger To Me,” backed 
with a golden oldie bonus of the 
aforementioned “I Remember You.” 

Under a unique recording agree- 
ment, Ifield continues to record in 
England through his long-time EMI 
association and, at the same time, is 
pacted to the independent Hickory 
label in the United States. This situa- 
tion is embodied in the “Tale Of Two 
Cities” LP, which contains some 
tracks recorded in London and others 
cut in Nashville. 



KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

ing K-BER’s country music show at 
the Municipal Auditorium in San An-

look because Grandpa Jones is rarely

GOODBYE CITY, GOODBYE 
GIRL (2:33) 

[Cedarwood, BMI— Powell, THAT SAME OLD STREET (2:20) 

Lopshonsky] [Cedarwood, BMI — Doss, Sykes] 

WEBB PIERCE (Decca 32098) 

Here comes Webb Pierce with what looks like another chart stand. 
Already getting action, “Goodbye City, Goodbye Girl” is a gear-jamming 
blueser that’s filled with that Webb Pierce flavor. “That Same Old 
Street” is a plaintive tale of woe that could also gain sizeable reaction. 


ANYTHING YOU’RE HEART DESIRES (2:32) [Metro, BMI— Walker] 

I GOTTA GET ME FEELIN’ BETTER (2:20) 

[Matamoros, BMI — Walker] 

BILLY WALKER (Monument 997) 

Billy Walker’s ardent following should be up for this latest session by 
the songster dubbed “Anything Your Heart Desires.” The side is a gentle, 
lushly orchestrated romancer. “I Gotta Get Me Feelin’ Better” is a 
bouncy, blues-flavored ode. 


TWO OF THE USUAL (2:41) [Pamper, BMI— Carter, Jr.] 

YOUR B.A.B.Y. BABY DON’T LOVE YOU (2:33) 

[Ly-Rann, BMI — Morris] 

BOBBY LEWIS (United Artist 50133) 

After roaring into the limelight with “How Long Has It Been,” Bobby 
Lewis should bounce right back with “Two Of The Usual.” Bobby does 
a real fine vocal job on this tale of disenchantment in romance. Flip is 
also a woes-laden effort, called “Your B.A.B.Y. Baby Don’t Love You.” 


JUST BEYOND THE MOON (2:58) [Central, BMI— Slate] 
GREEDY OLD DOG (2:02) [Delmore, ASCAP— Coben] 

TEX RITTER (Capitol 5839) 

One of his best sessions in many a moon, this lid by Tex Ritter, dubbed 
“Just Beyond The Moon,” could well put the songster beyond the charts. 
A potent lyric and a fine reading here. ‘Greedy Old Dog” is a modernized 
version of the old Aesop’s fable. 


ELM STREET PAWN SHOP (Independent Savings and Loan) (2:40) 
[Central, BMI — Rhodes, Goza] 

MISTY BLUE (2:25) [Talmont, BMI— Montgomery] 

FREDDIE HART (Kapp 794) 

Here’s a groovey deck that is likely to keep all of the Freddie Hart and 
the Heartbeats fans happy. Titled “Elm Street Pawn Shop (Independent 
Savings & Loan),” the side is an up-beat, clever, twanger about a 
money-lending filly. On the flip, “Misty Blue” is a subdued, bluesy ballad.

PICTURE THAT’S NEW (2:55) [Peach, SESAC— Woods] 

ROD BAIN (Chart 1420) 

This steady, shuffling ditty called “Mr. Jones I Want To Marry Your 
Wife” could well be the vehicle to launch Rod Bain into the chart scene. 
Nice session here. Flip is a smooth, sentimental venture called “Picture 
That’s New.”

is Curley Putman an American, but 
‘ he’s strictly a country writer, which 
■ makes the turnabout even more un- 
' usual. The song is, of course, “Green, 

! Green Grass Of Home” and the par- 

ticular version in question is by Tom 
Jones, the latest in a long list of re- 
cordings of the tune. 

Oddly enough, the song was not 
what would be considered an instant 
success in Putman’s adopted home 
town of Nashville. Originally written 
in 1964, the tune was first taken to 
Bobby Bare, but Bare didn’t cut it. 
However, at that time, a newcomer 
named Johnny Darrell had just 
signed on with United Artists and 
Bare played the demo for him. From 
there on in, the tune was established. 
Not only did Darrell’s record jump 
into the charts, but Porter Wagoner 
covered the deck and the two artists 
ran a neck and neck race up the 
charts. Porter Wagoner, who wound 
up with the biggest version, came to 


roost at the No. 7 spot on the Cash 
Box charts, and subsequently won a 
BMI award for Tree Music. 

Wins International Acclaim 

This brings up another oddity at- 
tached to the tune. In its native 
country habitat it climbed to No. 7, 
(with a batch of covers, including 
those by Gwen Collins and Jerry Lee 
Lewis) while a foreign artist recorded 
it in a pop vein and soared to No. 1 
in England, Ireland and Holland, No. 
3 in Australia and Top 5 in South 
Africa and Norway. In American pop 
charts the tune is at No. 10 and still 
climbing. 

Another interesting facet is the 
fact that the tune is strictly a flight 
of fancy and in no way related to 
Putman’s private life. That is, he’s 
never been in prison himself. His only 
relationship to a prisoner stems from 
his feelings of pity for those who are 
behind bars. 

Thus a song about a man who 
has lost everything becomes a huge 
money-maker for its composer. And 
a C&W tune becomes an even bigger 
item internationally than in its home- 
land. Well, turnabout is fair play, 
after all.

COUNTRY LP 
REVIEWS 



DON’T COME HOME A DRINKIN’ (WITH 
LOVIN’ ON YOUR MIND) — Loretta Lynn — 
Decca DL/DL7 4842 

Loretta Lynn has taken the title of her cur- 
rent smash single “Don’t Come Home A Drinkin’ 
(With Lovin’ On Your Mind)” for her new LP 
and come up with a package that all of her fans 
should be eager to hear. Besides the title song, 
Loretta offers such well known country tunes as 
“There Goes My Everything,” “The Shoe Goes 
On The Other Foot Tonight,” and “I’m Living In 
Two Worlds.” Should be a big one for Loretta 
here. 



WHERE’D YA STAY LAST NIGHT — Webb 
Pierce — Decca DL/DL7 4844 

Webb Pierce has been making a lot of noise on 
the charts with his current single “Where’d Ya 
Stay Last Night,” and this LP of the same name 
stands a good chance of meeting with equal suc- 
cess. In addition to the title track, the set in- 
cludes such country favorites as “Singing The 
Blues,” “I’m Living In Two Worlds,” and “Your 
Cheatin’ Heart.” Looks like a winner for Pierce. 



GOSPELTIME “IN MY FASHION” — Johnny 
Paycheck — Little Darlin’ LD 4004/SLD 8004 
Johnny Paycheck offers a moving, heart-felt 
performance of inspirational songs on this, his 
first gospel LP. Included in the selections are 
“I’m On My Way Home,” “I’m Better Off,” “The 
Old Rugged Cross,” “In The Garden,” and “Just 
A Closer Walk With Thee.” Paycheck’s devotees 
should really appreciate this one. 



THE HIT SOUNDS— Lloyd Green— Little Dar- 
lin’ 4005/SLD 8005 

Here’s a swinging LP effort by steel guitarist 
Lloyd Green that’s bound to find favor with his 
many fans. Among the fourteen numbers on the 
set are “Touch My Heart,” “The Lovin’ Ma- 
chine,” “Show Me The Way To The Circus,” and 
“Seven Days Of Crying.” Could be a powerful 
amount of country sales action in store for this 
one.

LHI Signs New Acts 

NEW YORK— LHI Records has an-

Also signed were Last Friday’s 
Fire, the rock group which backs 
Lynn Castle on her LHI debut “The

ROUND UP 


Cash Box COUNTRY 


Our thanks to all the great people 
in Nashville who helped make our 
recent visit as enjoyable as it could 
possibly be. From the Number Ones 
to the Up-And-Comings you were all 
great (as usual). Our only regret is 
that there wasn’t enough time to see 
everyone, so it looks like we’ll have to 
have a return engagement in order 
to visit with the ones we missed. 
Needless to say, the hospitality down 
there is tops. Would you believe 
everyone is tied for Number One on 
this week’s charts. . . . Speaking of 
charts, we heard quite a few that are 
headed that way during our stay. Be 
on the lookout for Lynn Anderson’s 
latest (can’t tell which side is the 
better), as well as a winner from Ray 
Pillow, another from Johnny Darrell, 
and the best Tex Ritter session we’ve 
heard in a long while. We’ll go out on 
a limb and predict that most of those 
mentioned will be the biggest that 
each of the artist’s has had to date. 
We’ll renege on the Tex single, 
though. He’ll have to go a long wav 
to beat “High Noon,” etc., etc. ... A 
lot of album sessions were also in 
the works, including those by Slim 
Whitman, an excellent assortment by 
Lynn “Ride, Ride, Ride” Anderson 
(her first), and Claude Gray’s initial 
Decca LP, titled after his big “I 
Never Had The One I Wanted” single. 
Del Wood tells us she’s also going 
into the studios for an album session 
as soon as she gathers the material. 
Good luck, Del! . . . Another session to 
watch out for will be Warner Mack’s 
brand new Decca LP. The new one is 
Warner’s first gospel album and will 
feature the recording debut of his 
sister Dean. 

Newkeys Music has been unani- 
mously elected by the board of direc- 
tors of the National Music Publishers 
Association to membership in the 
NMPA, effective Jan. 31. Only one 
other Music City publisher has gained 
membership in the organization, that 
being Acuff-Rose. 

Charlie Louvin is currently under- 
taking a project in which he will be 
attempting to rebuild the complete 
library of Tex Ritter recordings for 
Tex himself. The well-liked Hall of 
Famer had many of his recordings 
loaned out and lost, and Louvin will 
be trying to restore the collection to 
its original size. Thus far there’s been 
a sizeable amount of records regained, 
but not nearly all of them. Charlie is 
asking that anyone who has any old 
Tex Ritter records contact him and 
let him know which ones they are (he 
doesn’t want any records mailed to 
him), and he’ll decide whether or not 
they’re needed for the collection. Dee- 
jays could help out a great deal by 
letting their audiences know of the 
Louvin project. 

Hank Thompson was in Nashville 
last week for sessions, marking the 
first time that he has ever cut in 
Music City. Hank, who, by the way is 
i-'ack on the beam with “He’s Got A 
Way With Women,” has done most 
of his sessions in Los Angeles. The 
Nashville gig was handled by the 
versatile Joe Allison. 

Looks like the Tree overseas probe 
has met with an enthusiastic response. 
We’re anxious to hear all the details, 
Messrs. Stapp and Killen. Can it be 
there’s lots of “Green, Green Grass” 
in Europe ? Strut down that gutter, 
William D. 

There was kind of an impromptu 
birthday party at the Black Poodle 
on Feb. 4 (instigated by Nancy Ten- 
nant), with entertainment provided 
by Epic’s lovely Lois Johnson and 
undernourished Gordon Terry, both 
in real fine voice. Laughs were pro- 
vided by Merle Kilgore, as were the 
Sunday morning blues (need we say 
more). 


Some of the worst snowstorms of 
the century played havoc with show 
dates for a number of attractions 
from the Bob Neal talent stable re- 
cently. A package consisting of Sonny 
James & the Southern Gentlemen, 
Conway Twitty & the Lonely Blue 
Boys and Tommy Cash was scheduled 
for appearances Jan. 27 at Port 
Huron, Mich., Kalamazoo (28) and 
Muskegon (29). Although Sonny and 



KAPPS OFF TO NEILSON — Ed Neil- 
son who spins the country sounds for 
Metropolitan listeners over WJRZ- 
Newark, will host an upcoming series 
of country shows for Kapp Records, 
to be aired by the Armed Forces 
Radio. Here Neilson is shown (left) 
with Ted Shapiro, Kapp general man- 
ager of international operations, fol- 
lowing agreements for his services as 
emcee. 

the boys, along with Tommy Cash, 
managed to get through the storms to 
Port Huron, it was eventually de- 
cided to cancel all three dates with 
reports of over 20 inches of snow in 
Kalamazoo and a like amount in 
Muskegon. All the dates will hope- 
fully be rescheduled in the near 
future. The drastic weather also 
forced a reshuffling in other Neal 
bookings. Johnny Paycheck, LeRoy 
Van Dyke and Tex Ritter were sched- 
uled to appear in LaCrosse, Wise, on 
Jan. 27, but ice and impassable roads 
kept all three from reaching the ap- 
pointed spot on time. Fortunately it 
was possible to reschedule the en- 
gagement two days later. . . . Another 
top attraction, Stonewall Jackson & 
the Minute Men, had to cancel a Jan. 
29 booking at Flint, Mich., also be- 
cause of impassable roads. However, 
the James and Jackson units, Johnny 
Paycheck and Connie Smith were able 
to head on immediately for Winnipeg 
to start a tour there on Feb. 1. 

The Kathy Dee Show returned to 
the States on Jan. 18 after a three- 
week tour of the frozen north, with 
stopovers in Goose Bay, Labrador 
and Sondrestrom, Greenland. After 
being back only a few days she re- 
ceived a call from the NCO Club at 
Sondrestrom asking her if she could 
come back for another stand, begin- 
ning Feb. 2. With the cooperation of 
several clubs, manager “Reed” Welty 
had her schedule rearranged, and 
Kathy and her show are once again in 
snowbound in Greenland. This marks 
her fifth trip to the island base in the 
past 24 months. 

It was strictly a musical duet be- 
tween the Nashville flash and the 
West Coast wonder when Ferlin 
Husky brought his Hush Puppies to 
Tulsa’s Cain Ballroom on Jan 15. 
Across town Buck Owens, the unof- 
ficial mayor of Bakersfield, Califor- 
nia, ushered his Buckaroos into the 
Trianon. Official figures are unavail- 
able, but Music City claims to have 
won out on the head count (How 
about it, Buck?). Tulsans, who were 
thankful to have two top names to 
choose from, gave both performers 
lengthy ovations. 

Bee leaves Feb. 13 for Nashville 
where she’ll do a recording session at 
the Starday studios under the direc- 
tion of Howard Vokes and Tommy 
Hill. Deejays can get copies by writ-

CANADA 


Capitol of Canada has announced that they will distribute the complete 
Disneyland and Buena Vista catalogs in Canada, effective March 1st. They 
already are distributing all new releases on the two labels. 

Card from Wes Dakus and Barry Allen indicating that they are in the middle 
of a new session at the Petty Studio’s in Clovis, N.M. The Allen single, 
Armful Of Teddy Bears,” is a smash in all Canadian centers on Capitol, and 
has only recently been released stateside on Kapp. Indications are that Barry 
could come up with a winner all over North America. 

Quality has a blockbuster of a Centennial song on the go these days. Bobby 
Gimby s Canada” is far and away the Centennial hit in all Canadian markets. 
Into the bargain, “His Girl” by the Guess Who is a confirmed cross-Canada 
smash. 

The entire North American continent is beginning to take notice of the 
loronto group, the Mandala. The Mandala won acceptance in California, well 
before their record was released, and that ain’t easy, particularly for a 
Canadian group. The Mandala, the name, is a Buddhist symbol of the Universe, 
a circuiar sign of varying design used as an aid to contemplation. The hit sound 
that has debuted the group on the world’s record scene is “Opportunity” on the 
brand new K-R label. Phonodisc distributes nationally in Canada; Chess- 
Checker-Cadet in the U.S. Deejays are flipping for the sound, and it is being 
played heavily in Canada. 

a PP ea ^ 3 . that the latest by the Sandpipers will happen large in Canada. 
For Baby” is already getting heavy airplay in several important areas. It’s 
a great middle of the roader for daytime deejays in any format. Another A&M 
oubrng' that has the tables really spinning at Canadian stations is “The Cry Of 
The Wild Goose” by the Baja Marimba Band. 

Did you know department . . . Dave Summerville (Troy) has joined Capitol’s 
Four Preps. He can be heard on the group’s latest single outing, “Love Of The 
common People.” Dave was formerly with the Diamonds, and subsequently 
worked as a single, specializing in folk material. 

Ai Mair is very excited about “Mr. Farmer” by the Seeds. Group did good 
chart biz with their last GNP outing, “Pushin’ Too Hard.” 

Much surprise along deejay row — all pleasant — over the Earl Grant newie on 
Decca, ‘Hide Nor Hair.” Earl’s gone tne R&B route in a big way, and could 
have a large size hit. 

“For ^That It’s Worth” by the Buffalo Springfield has broken wide open 
across Canada. 


Music Hall is arranging a strong promo backing for Spanish artist Raphael 
who will arrive in Buenos Aires next month. His most recent single is “La 
Cancion del Trabajo,” recorded originally for Hispavox, coupled with a version 
of “J’Aime.” There is also a new single by Sinatra, “Winchester Cathedral," 
and others by Tommy James and the Shondells, Jimmie Rodgers, the Joe Cuba 
Sextet and regional instrumentalist Isaco Abitbol, along with the latest by 
Nancy Sinatra: “Sugar Town.” 


Odeon’s Press topper Domingo Ramos infos the release of the first album by 
flamenco artists Los Tahures, who sold very well their single “Strangers In 
The Night.” The diskery has been fully-represented at the Cosquin Song 
Festival by its General Manager Philip Brodie, Edgar Spinassi, Dennis Dunn, 
Ramos and promo man Juan Carlos Menna. 


RCA reports the outing of a new single by Palito Ortega. As in previous 
cases, it seems a sure runner. Titles are “Digan Lo Que Digan” and “La 
Felicidad,” both sides fully-penned by Palito. Also coming this week are “Try 
To Remember” by Barry McGuire and “Amaneci En Tus Brazos” by local lark 
Violeta Rivas. 


CBS comments this week on the extraordinary and continuous success of 
the recordings of Cuarteto Imperial which for three years have been con- 
sistently appearing in the charts, both for singles and LP’s. Their latest re- 
cording are “La Secretaria” and “Chola No Quiere Cholo,” both surpassing 
the 40,000 mark, which marks the hit status for a record in this country. Total 
sales for the Cuarteto have exceeded 2,000,000 units, and its speed has not de- 
creased a bit during the past months. 


Ricardo Castelblanco of Edami sends word about the success of “Winchester 
Cathedral” which has reached about 40 recordings in the world and of which 
there are several in this country, including Billy Bond (Odeon Pops), the Bull 
Dogs (RCA), Los Andinos and Mister Trombone (CBS). 


A strong item coming this week from Surco is the new Bobby Darin album, 
“The Shadow Of Your Smile,” (recorded originally by Atlantic in the States) 
and a Vogue album by Jackie Noguez playing Maurice Chevalier’s music. The 
label continues working on Antoine’s two albums, cut also by Vogue, with Les 
Problemes. 


Phonogram reports renewed interest on Italian lark Mina, once more ap- 
pearing in the RAI TV show “Studio Uno” aired here by Channel 11. The 
diskery has released a new album by this lark tagged “Bravissima.” The first 
album by French chanter Georges Brassens is due this month and will mean 
the start of a campaign in his behalf since French music is enjoying a good 
period in this country. On the folk side the diskery is promoting the new album 
by Los Quilla Huasi, “Senorio.” 


Trova is expecting good sales from the new album by Bud Shank recording 
for World Pacific. Shank is gaining fame with his renderings of international 
hits and appears frequently in the charts. The new album has been cut under 
orchestra direction and arrangements by Oliver Nelson. 


Disc Jockey is also joining the “flamenco” bandwagon thru Peruvian re- 
cordings by Manolo Corrales recorded in that country by Sono-Radio. Top 
flamenco recordings for Luque’s label is “Vuelo 502,” and also running high is 
“Estoy de Rodriguez,” a tune made popular at the Mau Mau night club. 
Besides DJ is now promoting an album by Richard Barton tagged “Music For 
Sensitive People.”

International News Report 


Unusual 'Snoopy' Ban On Aussy Radio 


AUSTRALIA — There is a rather 
strange situation existing in this coun- 
try over the “banning” of certain rec- 
ords due to their lyric content. 

Chief watchdog in this matter 
seems to be the Federation of Aus- 
tralian Commercial Broadcasters, an 
organization operating in the inter- 
ests of commercial radio throughout 
the nation. The Government-appointed 
“watchdog” is supposed to be the 
. Broadcast Control Board, which is in 
the business of supervising the pro- 
gram and “commercial” content of 
both commercial and National radio 


and TV; the National networks are 
controlled by the Federal Government, 
and are not members of the Federa- 
tion of Australian Commercial Broad- 
casters. 

The result of all this is that the 
Federation has instructed its mem- 
bers not to play the version of 
“Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron” by the 
Royal Guardsmen, which includes the 
word “bloddy” (see Australian col- 
umn, Feb. 4). But the Government- 
owned outlets are quite happily play- 
ing the so-called “rude” version, and 
seem pleased by such policy decisions. 


, 10th Cold LP Award For Freddy 


MUNICH — Polydor’s Freddy Quinn 
has been awarded his 10th gold disk 
for sales of over 250,000 on his LP, 
“Freddy aug Hoher See” (Freddy on 
the High Seas). This puts the star at 
the top of the list in Europe for rec-

ords selling over 1 million in singles 
and over 250,000 in LP’s. He is now 
appearing in the big hit musical, 
“Heimweh Nach St. Pauli” (Homesick 
for St. Pauli), which contains a song 
that sold a million for Freddy. 


Brazilian Siring Quartet Completes Tour 


NEW YORK — Discos CBS’ Brazilian 
String Quartet has just completed a 
successful concert tour of the United 
« States and Mexico. As a result of the 
tour, the Quartet is completing ne- 
gotiations with a prominent United 
States booking agent, who hopes to 
bring the four Brazilians back for a 
more extensive tour in the near 
future. 

Known in their native land as “The 
Official Quartet of the National School 
of Music of the University of Brazil,” 
. the CBS group is composed of violin- 
ists Santino Parpinelli and Jaques 
Nirenberg, violinist Henrique Niren- 
berg and cellist Eugen Ranevsky. 
t Cities in which the Brazilian String 
Quartet performed included Washing- 
r ton, D.C.; Boston, Massachusetts; 

^ Madison, Wisconsin; and Mexico City. 

A highlight of their tour was a con- 
cert sponsored by the Elizabeth 
Sprague Coolidge Foundation in 
Washington’s Library of Congress. 

For Discos CBS in Brazil, the 


Quartet has recorded the important 
works of such contemporary Latin 
American composers as Heitor Villa- 
Lobos, Radames Gnattali and Jose 
Siqueira. 

The Quartet has been previously 
applauded by concert audiences in the 
Middle East, in Europe and in the 
Americas. In September of 1967, they 
will travel to Lisbon to perform the 
world premiere of a Gnattali Concerto 
for String Quartet and orchestra. This 
concerto was written especially for 
the Brazilian String Quartet.

Walt Disney Co. Starts Suksid 


In Canada; Capitol 

TORONTO — The formation of Walt 
Disney Music of Canada, Ltd. has been 
announced by Jimmy Johnson, presi- 
dent of the Walt Disney Music, 
Wonderland Music, as well as vice- 
president of the disk division, Buena 
Vista Distributing Co., the three music 
firms of the Walt Disney organization 
in the United States. 

In making the announcement, which 
has already become effective, Johnson 
stated that the move was in line with 
the Walt Disney policy of creating 
wholly owned and operated music 
companies in many parts of the world 
to manufacture and distribute Disney- 
land and Vista records. 

The Canadian company will be under 
the active supervision of Bruce Butler 
of Toronto who has been a Disney 
employed representative in Canada 
for the past several years. Prior to 
his appointment to head the Canadian 
subsidiary, Butler has handled Disney 
television activities in Canada. He will 
continue in this capacity also. 

Pressing the Disneyland and Vista 
recordings in Canada will be done in 
London, Ontario by Sparton of Can- 
ada, Ltd. Canadian distributions will 


Ltd. Handles Disks 

be handled by Capitol Records (Can- 
ada) Ltd., headquartered in Toronto 
and with branches and distributors 
throughout the country. Ed Leetham, 
vice-president and general manager of 
Capitol in Canada, completed the 
arrangement for national distribution 
of the Disney records after negotia- 
tions with Jimmy Johnson and Robert 
Elliott, National Sales Manager of 
Walt Disney Record companies. 

Leetham recently attended studio 
meetings and screenings in Burbank 
and Glendale to see upcoming theatri- 
cal product, to hear music from these 
attractions and formulate plans of 
future record activities in Canada. 
Among the important productions 
viewed were “The Happiest Million- 
aire” and “The Jungle Book,” both 
with heavy accent on music in line 
with the Walt Disney Productions 
trend after the sensational success of 
music and records from the hit film, 
“Mary Poppins.” 

Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. 
Sherman, writers of the “Mary Pop- 
pins” song hits, produced 12 songs for 
“The Happiest Millionaire” and five 
for “The Jungle Book.”

British Decca Boasts Top 5 Singles 


LONDON — British Decca is on a hot 
singles streak with a rare touch. On 
the Cash Box Best-Selling list from 
England in the Feb. 11 issue, the label 
was involved in the first five listings. 

In order of their appearance were 
“I’m A Believer” by the Monkees, 
which Decca handles in England for 
RCA, “Matthew & Son” by Cat 
Stevens on Deram, the recently-estab- 
lished Decca line, “Green, Green Grass 
Of Home” by Tom Jones on Decca, 
“Night Of Fear" by the Move, also 
on Deram, “Let’s Spend The Night 
Together” by the Rolling Stones on 
Decca. 

With “Matthew” and “Night Of 
Fear” yet to be released in the U.S., 
London Records, American affiliate of 
Decca, is informing its distribs of the 
standing of the two sides in England 
as it releases the decks. “Our entire 
promotion staff is going all out to 
prove they are hits here, too,” says 
London’s Sy Warner. London is 
marketing the singles under the 


Deram tag. Both the Stones and Jones 
sides were previously issued in the 
States, while, of course, RCA Victor 
has met with top success on the 
Monkees date.

SCANDINAVIA' 


DENMARK 

Latest from Metronome includes “Lovin’ You” with Bobby Darin, “What Is 
Soul?” with Ben E. King, and “Baby What I Mean” with Drifters, all on 
Atlantic. 

Latest releases from NPA (Nordisk Polyphon Akts.) includes 14 low-price 
LPs on Ace of Clubs, the LP “Between The Buttons” on Decca (with Rolling 
Stones), local group Scarlets on Philips with a local single, Lovin’ Spoonful on 
Kama Sutra with “Nashville Cats,” Step By Step & Lea on CBS with 
“Marble Breaks,” and numerous EPs and LPs on Polydor, Philips, Decca, 
Fontana, Polyphon, Deram, London, Heliodor, Melody, and other labels. 

New sheet music from Francis, Day & Hunter Scandinavia A/S includes 
“Walk With Faith In Your Heart” by Tony Starr and Freddy James. On Reg 
Connelly, Musik-Forlag A/S is just published “Pamela, Pamela” by Graham 
Gouldman, “East West,” also by Gouldman, and “The Very Thought Of You” 
by Ray Noble, the latter with Danish lyrics (“Min Tanke Bor Hos Dig”) by 
A. Arffmann. 

NORWAY 

Latest news from Arne Bendiksen A/S brings two new LPs on Saba, 
“Swinging Tchaikovsky” with Eugene Cicero, and “Rokoko-Jazz,” also with 
Cicero. 

Manu brings some new releases this week. The group Souls has done “The 
Day Is Over,” Divorced has done “I’m Gonna Leave You Satisfied,” and 
finally, Age Samuelsen has done a new EP.

with “Happy Jack,” expected to be headed for the top of the charts. “Some- 
where, My Love” from “Dr. Zhivago” looks like something of a sensation, with 
not less than three different Swedish recordings fighting hard about the sales 
figures. At the moment, Country Four on Amigo appears on the charts, but at

strong rivals.

Paul Jones, now entering the Dutch charts with his latest single “I’m A Bad, 
Bad, Boy” is expected to ampex his Vara-Fanclub-bit while broadcast of same 
is scheduled on 10th February. Jones will push his single hits “High Time 
and “Bad Boy” in particular. It should be noted, that many Dutch blues fans 
will no doubt be raving about Jones’ beautiful hommage to the late Sonny 
Boy Williamson, the B-side of the “Bad Boy” hit. 

Hot pop news from Gramophonehouse : the initial single by Imperial’s re- 
cently-launched beat band Ekseption has been well received in its first week. 
Label chief Roel Kruyze keeps pushing hard both quality and versatility in 
radio and music press and had eyecatching posters printed for distribution 
among pop retailers. In the meantime Ekseption successfully operated at Am- 
sterdam ‘Beat ’66’ — and ‘Hubbub’ Clubs during the January/February week- 
ends. 

Bovema’s Parlophone label rushed out Billy Fury’s first Dutch release 
“Hurtin’ Is Loving,” Stateside has “The Feel Of Neil” (Diamond) out on its 
way, and there are new outstanding singles by Adamo (“Inch’ Allah”) and 
Herman’s Hermits. The latter’s “There’s A Kind Of Hush” could become a 
great follow-up for Herman’s gold-winner “No Milk Today.” Liberty last week 
featured its Julie London (“For The Night People”), the Johnny Mann Singers 
(“A Perfect Bland”) and “Viva Vic Dana” albums. Capitol is, as always, well- 
represented on the current c&w scene by new albums of Peter & Gordon, 
Charlie Louvin and Sonny James. 

The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, exclusive on CBS, visited Holland 
Jan. 26 through 29, for in-person appearances as well as radio and TV record- 
ings. Local AVRO-Radio made a recording with this famous Irish group at 
the Dutch Folk Club “De Waag” in Haarlem where the Clancy’s met the press 
as well. 

Due to the enormous popularity of this annual Festival, CBS released the 
following San Remo entries: Gene Pitney’s “Guardati Alle Spalle” c/w “La 
Rivolizione,” Riki Maiocchi’s “C’e Chi Spera” c/w “Uni In Piu ,” as well as a 
single containing “Io Tu E Le Rose,” entry by the famous French group Les 
Compagnons de la Chanson. 

After the Outsiders, one of Holland’s most sucessful groups, another Relax 
recording group is heading for international fame. The Zipps from Dordrecht 
appeared several times in Paris on two weekend trips, did a TV’er and arrived 
home again with much success and a big French fan club. Their latest Relax 
waxing “The Struggle For Ice Cold Milk Of Benzi The Bass Player, Or How 
To Promote Original Dutch Milk” is on its way to the top. 

Iramac, Holland’s growing independent record company, is now running a 
definite push for the sound of today, American rhythm & blues. In a search 
for masters, Iramac is starting a new label with only rhythm & soul music. 
It will be Holland’s first label, devoted exclusively to R&B music and thru a 
big radio and magazine push, success seems natural. Iramac has already 
contact with several R&B producers for its Soul Sound label. Athers may con- 
tact Iramac. 

Pete Felleman of Artone’s subsid Funckler Records reports further progress 
re the Tamla-Motown line in Benelux. The Four Tops' etching of “Standing 
In The Shadow Of Love” continues to climb the charts whilst their live LP 
is still going strong saleswise, too. New release includes “Love Is Here And 
Now You’re Gone” by the Supremes and “I’ve Passed This Way Before” by 
Jimmy Ruffin. New Funckler-released Epic album product this week includes 
Dave Grusin’s “Many Moods,” Lester Lanin’s “Richard Rodgers Hits,” Mari- 
achi Mexicanos’ “Soul Of Mexico” and “Great Songs Of The Sixties” played 
by the Glenn Miller Orchestra directed by Ray McKinley. Bobby Vinton is out 
with his current U.S. bestseller “Coming Home Soldier” as well as a promo 
LP containing his “Greatest Hits.” The Swinging Vyne bowed in on the Epic 
label in Benelux with “Tarzan.”

Most Australians are, of course, very interested to see that American star 
Bobby Hebb is now out with his version of “Ooh La La” which has been such 
a fantastic smash here for Normie Rowe, presently in England. 

Ted Albert, a director of the recording division of Albert Productions (which 
in turn is part of the publishing house of J. Albert & Son Pty, Ltd.), had re- 
cently returned to London to assist in the production of the new single and 
album by the Easybeats, the Australian group which is now doing so well in 
Britain and the Continent with the U/A single “Friday On My Mind.” 

The performance restriction has now been lifted from the song “Color My 
World” which has been successfully recorded by England’s Petula Clark. The 
Astor record company is out with the release which follows Pet’s previous hit 
“Who Am I.” 

Heavy performance restrictions have been slapped on both titles of the new 
single from the Beatles; namely, “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Field For- 
ever.” Both songs are composed by Lennon & McCarthy and published rights 
m this area are held by Northern Songs, through the Leeds Music group. 

Ron Gillespie at W & G Records expects big things from the Fraternity 
(American) label release “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye” by the Casinos. 
According to Ron, initial reaction is very bright indeed. 

Zooming into number five spot at its first appearance on our best-seller 
chart this time is “Gimme Some Lovin’ ” by the Spencer Davis Group. Many 
moons have passed since these boys last cracked it big in Australia, but there 
is no doubt that they are headed for bigger things with this Festival label 
release. It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen a new entry move as quickly 
as this. 

Also slamming in big this week is “Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron” by the Royal 
Guardsmen which has spread over the country like an epidemic. Others making 
their initial showing this time are “Georgy Girl” by the Seekers, which looks 
destined for the absolute top; “Oh Monah” by the Cherokees, a revival of the 
old Nat Gonella hit of some thirty years back; and “Summer Wine” by Nancy 
Sinatra, the reverse of “Sugar Town.” 

RCA could score heavily with “I Won’t Come In While He’s There,” the 
latest single release from the late Jim Reeves. 

The Who are receiving a fair swag of airplay with their latest, “Happy 
Jack,” for the Polydor people. 



*». T D?' gr0 i? P * he Jet B,acks cut for Chantecler another hit of Sam the Sham & 
“?® <%£ ara r? • a Portuguese version by Hamilton Di Giorgio. The Blackwell 
“■ 1 j . Hair On My Chin Chin” is titled here “Abre A Porta Chapeuzinho,” 

that it will repeat the success of “Chapeuzinho Vermelho” 
( Little Red Riding Hood”), currently in the charts here. Hamilton is preparing 
a version of ‘I m In With The Out Crowd,” penned by Samudio, and Fermata 
is signing sub-edition of these numbers for Brazil. 

From RCA Brasileira comes news of the appearance on Brazilian television 
of the recently premiered series of teen-group the Monkees. It will be shown 
here in March, and it will surely be a good sales boost for the discs of the 
group being released by local RCA. An album titled “14 Sucessos, Vol. 3” was 
released with 14 of the top hits of the year: “A Banda,” “Disparada,” “Lara’s 
“Girl,” “La Banda Borracha,” “Merci Cherie,” “Dia Das Rosas,” 
Saveiros, “O Carango,” “Les Cornichons,” “Strangers In The Night,” “La 
Fisarmonica,” and “Monday, Monday.” 

CBS Do Brasil announced that the recently-released album of successful 
twosome Leno & Lilian is doing very well, especially with the numbers “Balao 
Vermelho, “Eu Nao Sabia Que Voce Existia” and “Jogo De Amor”. The new 
single by Luiz Carlos Clay, “Livre,” is getting good airplay. New Chantress 
Marines has her disc bow with single “Disparada” c/w “Menina Nao Me 
Arremede.” Another group called Os Ingenuos have a single in the market with 
Seu Pafuncio” b/w “Pimentinha.” In the meantime another group Os Jovens 
is celebrating the success of the number “Se Voce Me Abandonar” and is pre- 
paring material for their first album.

Editorial 


Memo 


~\ 


Perhaps one of the reasons why, as it has been said, 
there is so little, or not enough, communication in the 
coin machine industry is the number of people on 
various levels that must communicate. 

It is easy for a president’s memo to find its way 
down to clerk, but not so easy for a clerk’s thoughts 
to find their way to the president. It is not so easy for 
anyone’s thoughts to find their way to the president, 
since they are not usually called for, and appear mostly 
in times of alarm or protest. 

Consider the pyramid of the coin machine industry. 
At the top is the manufacturer, followed by the dis- 
tributor, followed by the operator, with location owner 
and customer related. That is a long road to follow for 
a sale, especially if one is having trouble making him- 
self heard or understood. The important feature of this 
triumvirate is that each part of it depends on what it 
sells or buys to make a living — depends on it even be- 
fore the final consumer sale is made. 

Under such terms, and given the present economy, 
it is not surprising that the operator complains about 
not making enough money, that the distributor com- 
plains that “nobody buys with cash,” and that the 
manufacturer keeps a constant eye on developing 
sales reports. 


The problem can be complicated even more if, as 
has been said, one segment or all the segments of the 
industry look directly to the consumer for prestige and 
appeal instead of to each other, and working for each 
other. “Working for each other” is not meant as a 
“sweet tomorrow” phrase. It is the fact of life for this 
trade. Lack one, lack all. 

What the coin machine industry offers the public 
are mechanical way-stations at which or in which they 
may obtain pleasure or some functional item — amuse- 
ment, lipstick, music, candy. They do not sell or make 
available these things direct. Oddly enough, the vari- 
ous segments of the industry rarely come in personal 
contact with the man who makes all their livings — the 
man with a dime. Nor is there any good reason they 
should. The man with the dime does not know usually 
who they are, nor does he usually care. He cares only 
for the machine itself and the service it performs or 
the pleasure it affords. 

It seems logical then that the goals for manufac- 
turers, distributors and operators should be to make 
the best machine available at the fairest price for the 
most knowledgeable use, and that ideas for the reach- 
ing of these goals be freely and confidently exchanged.

State Congressman to Speak 

Smith Calls for Extra Effort for N. 


FAYETTEVILLE, N. C.— David C. 
Smith, president of the North Caro- 
lina Coin Operators Association, has 
announced a weekend meeting for 
Sunday February 19, at Horne’s 
Motor Lodge, Fayetteville. 

Praising the work of the Virginia 
and South Carolina organizations for 
“what they have done for their op- 
erators, we can only say that we too 
can get results in North Carolina, if 
we have a large organized member- 
ship to speak for our industry.” 

“I am sure some of our operators 
will want to come down on Saturday, 
so we have made arrangements with 
some of the distributors — Brady, Le- 


Stourgeon, Roanoke Vending and 
Southeastern Vending — to have a 
hospitality lounge set up where mem- 
bers and guests can sit and talk 
shop.” 

Smith said the main speaker would 
be Sneed L. High, now a member of 
the state House of Representatives, a 
former state commissioner of revenue 
and an attorney who will have “a 
timely and important message con- 
cerning us as operators.” 

“I urge all interested operators to 
come see us, whether they are mem- 
bers or not. This is the one place 
where you can sit down with a friend 
or a competitor and discuss your 


Carolina Ops 

problems. You’ll find the other fellow 
has problems too, and you’ll leave 
feeling you’ve accomplished something 
worthwhile.” 

Smith said he would set up a nom- 
inating committee to present a new 
slate of officers for the rest of the 
association’s working year, and that 
the possibilities of having a mechanics 
school in the state would be discussed. 


Hasvold for Dakota Ops 

HURON, S.D. — Mac Hasvold was 
elected president of the South Dakota 
Music & Vending Association here at 
a weekend meeting held January 29- 
30. 

Known as an inventive and pro- 
gressive coinman, Hasvold owns Mu- 
sicvend, Inc., in Sioux Falls. Also 
elected were: Dean Schroeder, vice 
president; Earl Porter, secretary- 
treasurer; Darlow Maxwell, Elmer 
Cummings, Ronald Manolis and Larry 
Radtke, directors. 

The next meeting will be held in 
Salem, at a date in May to be an- 
nounced.

Bally Unveils "Capersvitte" 4-P with 'Flipper Upper 


CHICAGO — “Never before have so 
many major features been packed 
into a flipper-type game,” was the 
confident assertion of Bill O’Donnell, 
president of Bally Manufacturing 
Company, Chicago, announcing de- 
livery last week of ‘Capersville,’ new 
4-player game. 

“From top to bottom,” O’Donnell 
continued, “the ‘Capersville’ panel is 
alive with surprising action features. 
At the bottom of the board is the 
‘Flipper-Zipper’ introduced in ‘Ba- 
zaar,’ by which the flipper-gap is 
closed by skill, two separate targets 
blocking the flipper route to the out- 
hole, while the flippers remain active 
as ever. 

“At the very top of the field are 
two Kick-Out Holes which permit the 
player to gain extra balls, because 
balls trapped in the Kickout-Holes are 
not lost. Player still gets his full 5 or 
3 balls, depending on style of opera- 
tion. When the captive balls are re- 
leased by skill, the riotous action of 
3 balls on the playfield at the same 
time results. 

“Balls remaining captive after each 
player shoots — or at the end of the 
game — are potential free balls to the 



Bally CAPERSVILLE 4P 


next player, providing a strong incen- 
tive to repeat play. 

“Another enticing carryover fea- 
ture is provided by the 4-Steps Free 
Ball Exit. If one player fails to jockey 
the ball through the alley to the 
plunger tip, the next player — in the 


same game or a new game — can try 
to release the free ball. 

“In addition to the 4-Steps Free 
Ball Exit, ‘Capersville boasts a Kick- 
back Free Ball Gate, which fires the 
ball back to the top of the playfield, 
scoring the Code-Match score on the 
way. 

“And the Code-Match feature is 
another innovation, providing back- 
glass animation and surprise bonus 
scoring. The Match-Wheel advances 
by skill and each Kickback ball scores 
points indicated by code matching the 
wheel at the moment of Kickback — 
100, 300 or 500. 

“Another bonus feature is offered 
by the 4 Bonus Computers in the 
backglass, one for each player. Com- 
puter advances when each player 
lights all 6 portholes in the ‘Sea Ray’ 
submarine by skill, and special is 
scored at various adjustable bonus 
points. 

“The carnival of ‘Capersville’ fea- 
tures is set in the frame of Jerry 
Kelley’s fantasy art, which adds to 
the eye-appeal and play-appeal of the 
game. From every angle — looks, ac- 
tion and earnings — ‘Capersville’ is 
winning raves around the world.”

CHICAGO — Combined announcements 
came from the offices of MOA last 
week. Managing director Fred Gran- 
ger announced a new program of 
greater cooperation and membership 
in the association for one-stops. 

“One-stop membershin has been a 
pet project here,” said Granger, “one 
of several pet projects that had to be 
put off because of the recurring copy- 
right contest — which is, as usual, on 
us again — but I think even that could 
be mitigated if we had the member- 
ship and support of the record one- 
stops.” 

“We are therefore cordially invit- 
ing all record one-stops to become 
members of MOA — full members with 
all the advantages and benefits that 
anyone else in the organization has. 
The operator and the one-stop are so 
closely related in business and the 
copyright question that membership 
seems logical and desirable.” 

“That’s just the noint,” said MOA 
president James Tolisano. “We’re not 
saying to the one-stops ‘we want you 
to work for us’ — the point is, we want 
to work for them and with them. It’s 
a mutual effort and both sides would 
profit.” 

Granger then announced the dates 
for the board of directors’ meeting in 
Washington, D.C.. March 5, 6 and 7 
at the Statler Hilton Hotel. 


NORTH TON AW AND A-— -A letter to 
Wurlitzer operators, signed by Robert 
H. Bear, sales manager, asks their co- 
operation in an economic survey, the 
results of which are to be used as 
part of the industry’s presentation at 
the expected jukebox royalty debate 
on H.R. 2512, the newest Cellar Bill. 

An enclosed questionnaire, on a 
fold-over prepaid postage envelope, 
lists five questions concerning operat- 
ing costs. The survey is being con- 
ducted by Price Waterhouse & Co. 

The letter, dated February 3, says 
in part, “The manufacturers in co- 


This year’s meeting will follow the 
same general format as last year’s 
highly successful Washington meet- 
ing. It will open with a luncheon on 
Sunday, at which new directors will 
be welcomed and officially take their 
places on the board. 

Following the luncheon, MOA legal 
counsel Nicholas E. Allen will conduct 
a seminar for the directors on the 
status of jukebox legislation. 

On Monday and Tuesday mornings, 
directors will call on their Senators 
and Congressmen. The board’s busi- 
ness sessions will be held in the after- 
noons. This format has proven very 
successful for the nast two years. As 
before, the Capitol Hill calls will be of 
nrime imnortance in explaining the 
MOA position relative to the jukebox 
royalty question. 

Other it' ms of business on the 
agenda include an overhaul of MOA 
committees to make them more re- 
sponsive to association needs, an 
overhaul of procedures for nomination 
and election of candidates to the 
board, a review of convention policies 
with view to making this annual 
event a more effective service to both 
exhibitors and visitors, and a revamp- 
ing of the MOA annual awards pro- 
gram for record companies. 


operation with the operators intend 
to oppose (the provisions of the Bill) 
vigorously. Your help and cooperation 
in answering the enclosed question- 
naire in order to develop the economic 
facts about your industry is critical. 
This is the same questionnaire used 
effectively in 1959 when the informa-

bers of Congress that the jukebox op- 
erators would suffer serious economic 
injury if exposed to unlimited royalty 
demands by the performing rights so- 
cieties.”

Daddis Dubs Musical 
Distribs as NY Reps 
for United Billiards 



ART DADDIS 


NEWARK, N. J. — Art Daddis, pres- 
ident of United Billiards, Inc., has 
announced the appointment of Musical 
Distributors Corp. as his exclusive in 
the greater New York area. Harold 
Kaufman, who heads the prominent 
New York distributing outlet (with 
branch offices in Brooklyn and Man- 
hattan), will include Nassau, Suffolk 
and Westchester conties in his United 
territory as well as portions of other 
neighboring counties. 

In announcing the appointment, 
Daddis described Kaufman’s as “the 
most progressive distributor in the 
metropolitan area whose experience 
as a successful operator gives him a 
keen insight into the potential and 
problems of coin table operation in 
this city.” 

United Billiards is presently in full 
production on five coin table sizes 
(from the 3 x 6 to regulation size) at 
their two plants located here in 
Newark on Hunter and Loretto 
Streets. 


has promised that all replies will be 
kept strictly confidential, that no one 
outside of the Price Waterhouse re- 
search staff will see the contents of 
any of the responses or the identity 
of the responding operator, and that 
all individual questionnaires will be 
destroyed by Price Waterhouse at the 
end of the general survey. 

Contacted at Wurlitzer Company 
headquarters, sales and promotion di- 
rector A. D. Palmer Jr. offered the 
following comments: 

“These questionnaires are being 
used by all the phonograph manufac- 
turers; the letter is simply our ap- 
proach to let the operators know 
what’s needed. Thousands of the en- 
velopes were printed and each manu- 
facturer took his portion. In addition 
to that, all Wurlitzer distributors will 
have copies of the letter and ques- 
tionnaires. 

“No operator need feel that he’s 
taking his clothes off in public when 
he fills out one of these envelopes. All 
the answers are strictly confidential, 
likewise the names of the operators. 

“I think the survey is an excellent 
idea — it’s a proven idea; it worked 
well for us in 1959 and I know the 
economics of the jukebox industry 
have changed since that time, and the 
Congress should know it, too. There’s 
a prestige to Price Waterhouse sur- 
veys. Nobody will be able to say, ‘Oh, 
you just made those figures up.’ If 
we can walk into the hearings with 
that information under our arm, it’ll 
be the best ammunition we have. 

“A lot of people think that a juke- 
box is an automatic pot of gold, and 
we all know it ain’t necessarily so, as 
the song says. That’s why these ques- 
tionnaires are so important. 

“We intend to saturate the country 
with these envelopes. Last time out, 
in 1959, we had a twenty-five percent 
response, and that’s pretty good. We 
should do as well this time, or better. 
I’d like it to be a hundred percent, 
and maybe we’d get rid of some of 
those old ‘jukebox millionaire’ stories 
once and for all. But what the oper- 
ator should do right now is fill it out 
and send it in. For his own sake.”

Ten Years of Tears/In The Dark— 
Capitol 5841 


The willowy Miss Wilson comes out 
swinging with Billy May’s band 
cheering her on. With the vocal zip- 
ping over, under, in, out and around 
the instrumental fireworks, with lyr- 
ics suitable for Peggy Lee or Pearl 
Bailey, and the furious pace of the 
performance coming to a surprise 
dead stop, the record ought to be good

lington feel and orchestration. 


Mellow Yellow/Bobby The Poet —

Sentimental Journey/The

Almost a sure-fire jukebox tune for 
the older tavern crowd, this combi- 
nation of discreet brass and precise 
Spanish-style guitar played in the 
manner of the late and very great 
Django Reinhardt should put the 
moody patron in a relaxed mood. Pro- 
gram for variety. 


“Well, I don’t understand what 
‘Mellow Yellow’ means either,” says 
Senator Bobby — which may reflect 
the opinions of some who heard the 
original by Donovan. Sufficiently 
goofey. For all those who don’t under- 
stand — or appreciate — the works of 
B. Dylan of Simon & Garfunkel, the 
flip is a very “in” hatchet job with 
some brilliant mimicry. The Senators 
did pretty well last time out with 
Wild Thing. Try some of this.

Senator Bobby & 


John Sebastion (of the Lovin’

of California — a lazy, charming, mu- 
sical shrug of the shoulders which 
Miss Falana works into with a will- 
ing voice and a superior arrange- 
ment. Workin’ In The Coalmine is a 
faithful re-working of the recent 
Lee Dorsey blues hit. Program in

Back in the year 1917, when the 
American public was singing (and 
much of it going) ‘Over There’, a 
little store opened its doors on Phila- 
delphia’s North Broad St. for the 
distribution of coin - operated gum 
and charm machines to a very, very 
small band of independent operators. 
The sign above that door read ‘Ban- 
ner Specialty Company’ and the man 
who first opened it for business fifty 
years ago was Isadore H. Rothstein. 

Rothstein, who preferred to be iden- 
tified simply as ‘I.H.’ throughout his 
long career, soon emerged as the key 
wholesaler to a rapidly expanding fac- 
tion of Philadelphia area operators. 
During these infant days of the coin 
machine industry, the operator’s main 
task was not in securing locations in 
this town, but in acquainting the pub- 
lic mind with the novel notion of acti- 
vating a machine by depositing a coin 
in a slot (usually a penny). 

The great proliferation of locations 
in Philly and the surrounding area 
which followed during the postwar 
‘Twenties’ boosted equipment sales 
momentum at Banner. Rothstein 
made hay by offering his customers a 
simple amusement counter-top pin- 
game whose popularity was instan- 
taneous with the pleasure-seeking 
public. Even at the “outrageous” price 
of $12.50 (a game which required the 
player to keep his own score), I.H. 
enjoyed a profitable run on such early 
brands as Daval, Keeney. Stoner and 
Genco as well as Gottlieb and Bally. 

ROTHSTEIN CREATES 
PITTSBURGH BRANCH 

The advent of the battery-operated 
pingame some years later offered the 
public the utmost in coin-operated 
fun and convinced Rothstein to double 
his operator coverage in Penn, and 
open another office in Pittsburgh 
(which he did in 1937). He engaged 
Harry Rosenthal to head up the 
branch with Harry’s son Herb as gen- 
eral assistant. 

America entered the war in 1941 
and with it, the War Production 
Board restraint was slapped on the pro- 
duction of all non-essential equipment 
including new games and phonographs. 
Banner Specialty turned exclusively to 


the sale of used pieces which they 
reconditioned in both Philadelphia 
and Pittsburgh shops. (One of the 
earliest mechanics still in Banner’s 
employ is Jimmy Johnson who joined 



Now . . . and then. Herb Rosenthal 
(today, left) celebrates his 30th an- 
niversary with Banner; and in 1945 
as U.S. Army Major. 


the Pittsburgh branch in 1938.) Both 
offices remain today as recognized 
giants in the volume of used units 
which pass through their recondition- 
ing line. 

(At the same time, a gentleman 
named Lyn Durant was also involved 
in refurbishing used coin machines out 
in Chicago. Durant had nothing to do 
with Banner at this time but his elec- 
trical and mechanical inventiveness 
would figure largely in the firm’s fu- 
ture after the war had ended.) 

ENTER AL RODSTEIN 

Just after the end of World War II, 
the firm’s future president Albert 
Rodstein joined the Philadelphia 
effort. 

When the troops came back in 1945- 
46, one of the returning officers was 
Major Herb Rosenthal. During his ab- 
sence, his father Harry Rosenthal had 
refurbished the entire Pittsburgh shop 
and showroom and in 1947 took on the 
Packard phonograph line for Western

In 1948, the Pittsburgh office was 
awarded the AMI phonograph line in 
place of the Packard and began dis-

side change is evident since the branch was founded 
in ’37 but inside is a different story. 


ENTER DURANT’S 
‘SHUFFLE ALLEY’ 

In 1949, a Chicago amusement ma- 
chine factory called United Mfg. 
(newly-organized and headed by the 
afore mentioned Lyn Durant) pre- 
sented a new game to the operating 
industry called ‘Shuffle Alley’. This 
game (which was promoted for 10d 
play, rather ambitious for the period) 
was described by United’s general sales 
manager Billy DeSelm at that time in 
this manner: “'Hie game itself scores 
like true bowling in every fashion. 
Strikes and spares and actual bowling 
scoring is achieved ingeniously by the 
use of a steel puck. The action is ex- 
tremely pleasing and the distributors 
and operators who called at the United 
plant to play the game were loud in 
their praise of it. We believe that 
‘Shuffle Alley’ is going to prove itself 
one of the most outstanding games of 
all time.” With these remarks, DeSelm 
coined one of the rarest understate- 
ments in the history of the coin ma- 
chine industry. 

Four of those distributor repre- 
sentatives who were loudest in their 
praise of ‘Shuffle Alley’ were I.H. 
Rothstein, A1 Rodstein and Harry and 


Banner staffer (and former basket- 
ball pro) Angela Musi organized the 
Shuffle Bowling League of America. 



A1 Rodstein, at right, is seen on the 
golf links during the 50’s with fellow 
coinman Pres Struve. Rodstein, and 
many in his family, are well known as 
accomplished golfers in Philadelphia 
circles.

As we celebrate our Fiftieth Year of Service 
to the Coin Machine Industry, we acknowledge 
with gratitude the recognition which has 
helped establish Banner Specialty Company 
as one of the foremost Distributors in the 
country. 

The confidence and good-will we enjoy to- 
day were not attained by years alone. Our 
achievements must be shared by many who 
have helped us get where we are since 1917. 
Our progress is due first of all to the integrity 
and dedication of our personnel and the people 
of the factories we represent. This has re- 
sulted in the continuous, satisfied patronage 


we enjoy from our present operator customers 
(of whom there are many) . . . and our 
former customers (of whom there are very 
few indeed). 

Today, on the threshold of our second half 
century, we look forward to further cement- 
ing these relationships and to making new 
ones. While now we are old in experience, 
we are still young and vital enough to re- 
affirm our dedication to the principles of 
responsibility, quality and service to the in- 
dustry so that our progress — together — will 
be even greater.

: SHUFFLE LEAGUE CATAPULTS GAME, 
; ROTHSTEIN RETIRES, RODSTEIN TO TOP 


This shuffle league, of which Rod- 
stein was president and Musi eom- 
4 missioner, was perhaps the single 
most effective promotional gambit in 
establishing the popularity of shuffle 
alley play in the U.S.A. Prime time on 
d television stations WCAU-TV and 
WFIL-TV were occupied by the 
league’s shuffle tournaments spon- 
sored by Banner Specialty. These con- 
tests enjoyed immense popularity 
among both contestants and viewers. 
Tournament winners gained valuable 
awards, even to a brand new Olds- 
mobile sedan. Certified shuffle alley 
locations throughout the city received 
’ special score cards, rules and regula- 
tions for play. 

On. Jan. 28th of that year, a portion 
of the Mutual Broadcasting Systems’ 

• ‘Sports Parade’ program (a coast to 
coast affair) was devoted to the Shuffle 
Bowling League of America and in- 

w troduced Musi to the radio audience. 
On this broadcast, United’s Lyn 
Durant was labeled a “genius” by the 
sportscaster for his “electrical inge- 

* nuity in arranging for perfect bowling 
scoring automatically.” 

Before the furor died down, the 
league idea had spread to many spots 
x in the country and had succeeded in 
helping establish the shuffle alley as 
a standard coin-operated game and a 
fixture in thousands upon thousands 
of locations. 

* ‘Shuffle Alley’ was followed by 
‘Super Shuffle’ and then ‘Rebound 
Shuffle’ in one, two, four and finally 
the six-player version whose style re- 

( mains popular today. 

HARRY ROSENTHAL 
- PASSES AWAY 

In 1955, Harry Rosenthal passed 
away. Herb Rosenthal, who had been 
active in the entire operation of the 

► Pittsburgh office, became the new 
branch manager, a post he holds 

». today. Also in that year, Ernie Grier 
joined the Philadelphia shipping de- 
. > partment and A1 Clifford became that 
branch’s vending service manager for 
music and games. His well known 
counterpart for the vending division is 
Fred Koelzer. 

► 

>- ROTHSTEIN RETIRES 

* „ I. H. Rothstein, Banner’s founder, 
| retired in 1958, the same year in 
I which A1 Rodstein ascended to the 
v presidency. Jimmy Ginsberg was ap- 
pointed general manager of the Phila- 
delphia office in 1961 and in 1962 was 
on hand to welcome the Wurlitzer 
Company phonograph franchise for 
Eastern Penn. 



JIMMY GINSBERG 

Since 1961, Ginsberg’s talent has 
brought great verve to the Philadel- 
phia enterprise. 

1963 saw the arrival of the Auto- 
matic Products Co. with their Smoke- 
shop cigarette vendor for Philadelphia. 
The Pittsburgh office was appointed 
distributor for the Rowe full line of 
vending products for Western Penn, 
and several bordering counties in W. 
Va. and Ohio. 

During this last decade, the coin- 
operated pool table attracted much of 
the great activity attendant upon the 
shuffle alley of the 50’s. Banner has 
been state-wide distributor for Valley 
Mfg. and Sales Co. and of late for 
United Billiards tables. 

Those perennial money-makers — the 
pingames — established Banner as a 
successful distributor at the outset and 
still play an important part (both in 
new and used merchandise) in the 
firm ever since. But nowadays, names 
like Daval and Stoner have been re- 
placed by D. Gottlieb & Co. whose 
products are distributed in Western 
Penn, by Banner out of Pittsburgh. 

Ginsberg’s Philadephia office also 
handles the Universal Vendors line 
for Eastern Penn. Banner is further- 
more the distributor for U. S. Auto- 
matic Sales Company’s complete line 
of new and remanufactured equipment 
for its entire territory. 

With both offices running smoothly 
under the leadership of Rosenthal and 
Ginsberg, Banner’s president A1 Rod- 
stein has devoted more and more of 
his time during recent years toward 
advancing other interests in the in- 
dustry and in charitable work.

CASEY LOWICKI 
“A SPEEDING BULLET” 

Out of the forty-plus employees who 
make the Banner wheels turn for both 
offices, “the service behind the sale” 
principle is perhaps best demonstrated 
by the remarkable feats of Pittsburgh 
service manager Casey Lowicki — “the 
flying mechanic.” Lowicki’s privately- 
owned Piper Cub aircraft is constantly 
pressed into service to transport him 
“faster than the proverbial speeding 
bullet” anywhere in the territory to 
cure an operator’s service-ill. Three 
other familiar faces to W. Penn, ops 
(based at the Pittsburgh office) are 
music and games chief Paul Cohen 
and vending sales manager Bill Hamel 
ably assisted by Cal Jackson.

“MR. INSIDE” 


Casey Lowicki prepares to take off to answer of an operator-customer 
in his privately-owned craft. The photo, fairly dated, shows Casey’s

PHILADELPHIA SALES 
STAFF EXPANSION 

Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Frank 
Wallen and Steve Jablon j'oined the 
sales force in 1963 and 1965 respec- 
tively and in this short time have 
built up an impressive list of road op- 
erator-customers adding strength to 
Banner’s sales effort. 

With Philadelphia activity at an 
all-time high, Ginsberg brought in 
Marc Rodstein in Sept, of 1966 as 
administrative coordinator of all de- 
partments. Marc has already earned 
the moniker “Mr. Inside”, according 
to Ginsberg, who claims the creation 
of this new post has provided a prof- 


itable fluidity between sales, serivce, 
shipping and accounting. 

PRINCIPLES & 
PROPHECIES 

After these 50 years of solid growth, 
Banner Specialty today is fitting 
testimony to the solvency and stability 
of the coin machine industry in gen- 
eral. But many distributing houses 
have come and gone during this half- 
century, demonstrating clearly that 
something besides men, machines and 
screwdrivers is needed for success. 

Success in the coin industry re- 
quires not only sales talent and an 
educated, sometime intuitive eye on 


the market, but genuine regard for 
the stability and success of the opera- 
tor himself. These qualities are the 
credentials of the Rodsteins, Rosen- 
thals and Ginsberg’s and the bywords 
of Banner. Cash Box and the coin 
machine industry salute this firm and 
hope these 50 years are only Chapter 
I in a healthy and prosperous continu- 
ing story. 

As Rodstein himself remarked dur- 
ing the interview for this story; “I 
can still say, in this 50th year of 
business, we still feature the finest in 
equipment, service and personnel. But 
it takes a heap of tenacity and a gen- 
uine belief in this business of coin 
machines. We’ve got both.”

NORTH TONAWANDA — Leonard 
Hicks, Wurlitzer, west coast service 
representative, finished the month of 
January conducting service seminars 
in Long Beach and Las Vegas. The 
moveable Mr. Hicks, never too busy 
to hold a school whenever and wher- 
ever the need arises, held forth at 
Thompson Coin in Long Beach, Cali- 
fornia on January 20th for Bill 
Thompson, Gary Thompson, Dennis 
Jacobs and Claude Adams. 

He followed the next day, Saturday,

cacies of the new “Americana” phono- 
graph and companion remote selective 
speaker “Satellite” to Dave Haw-

HOUSTON HAPPENINGS 


Francis Cruz, head of service de- 
partment at Central Sales (Rowe 
AMI), well known in local coin ma- 
chine service since World War Two, 
might have been equally successful as 
a professional musician. That is as 
could be expected for all his immedi- 
ate family was so inclined. During 
late thirties no large assembly of 
Texas coinmen that included both 
sexes was quite complete without 
singing of Marie Cruz Von Reydt 
(wife of Hans Von Reydt, presently 
regional sales mgr. for Rowe) accom- 
panied by her sister Josephine Cruz 
at piano. As did numerous well known 
pros Francis started with Peck Kellys 
Band, then the leading dance band of 
this city. Later he performed with 
Dallas Municipal Band and others 
and while in service during World 
War Two played in Ellington Field 
band. . . . That good looking counter 
girl at United Record Distributors 
since late December is Rena Justilian. 
. . . Charles Goldberg, West Coast 
reg. sales mgr. for United Artists Re- 
cord, Inc., made a few days business 
visit here early in February. 

Well known local coinman Billy 
Rider recently signed up as salesman 
in phonograph and vending machine 
dept, for Central Sales Co. Manager 
George Jamail said Billy would work 
both city and surrounding trade area 
territory. . . . H. A. (Hoddy) Franz, 
head of H. A. Franz & Co. (Seeburg) 
worked off a severe cold without loss 
of time from his office. Hoddy re- 
ported surprisingly good sales for 
their Arctic Gun, a Williams product. 

. . . A. F. (Al) Lemke, dean of Hous- 
ton coin machine operators until his 
retirement several months ago, re- 
mains in critical condition at St. 
Joseph’s hospital after multiple major 
surgery some three weeks ago. Al is 
in his middle seventies. . . . Marge 
McIntyre, Central Sales Record Dept., 
always pleasing to the eye but more 
so with a new late model hairdo . . . 
1966 was a good year for most of the 
people in Houston coinmatics lines. 
As a whole, they predict a better one 
in 1967 but expect to work harder. 
One overall definite trend is toward 
more Vending and less amusement 
game operations. Coin car wash op- 
erations, plentiful as they are, re- 
portedly are making money. 


filters, each made in two sizes, and 
each with a low-cost replacement car- 
tridge. Between them, these three 
filters “solve any water filtration prob- 
lem a post-mix vending operator is 
ever likely to have,” the company 
said. 

“All three types of Cuno-Vend 
filters are made of sanitary stainless 
steel and brass. Quite simple and 
compact in design, they require only 
%" clearance under the filter for car- 
tridge changing. Cartridges can be 
changed in a couple of minutes, with- 
out tools.” 

All three Cuno-Vend filters come in 
two sizes: a single cartridge size and 
a double cartridge size, for use in 
multiple machine locations. 

The cartridges for each of the three 
types of Cuno-Vend filters are spe- 
cially constructed to solve one par- 
ticular problem completely. These car- 
tridges are: 

The Cuno-Vend Taste/Odor Stop- 
per: An eight inch column of acti- 
vated charcoal encased in a plastic 
housing with a pure white filter disc 


at each end. Removes chlorine, chlo- 
ramines, sulphur, “color,” and other 
offensive tastes or odors which spoil 
the taste of vended beverages. Chlo- 
rine is the most common offender. It 
kills carbonation, makes ice cubes 
cloudy and mushy, and ruins the 
taste of coffee. 

The Cuno-Vend Dirt Stopper: A 
pure white cylinder of resin-bonded 
cellulose, this cartridge works on the 
“graded-density” principle to remove 
particles of dirt, rust, algae, silt, and 
other sediment which could clog 
pumps and valves. Installed on the 
cold water line, it removes particles 
as small as a grain of talcum pow- 
der. Dirt removal is measured in cubic 
inches of cartridge body, not just 
square inches of cartridge surface. 

The Cuno-Vend Scale Stopper: A 
multi-function filter cartridge en- 
cased in a plastic housing. Contains 
a pure white pre-filter to remove sedi- 
ment, an activated charcoal column 
to remove bad tastes and odors, a 
built-in cylinder of polyphosphate 
crystals that keeps minerals from 


plating out of solution as “lime” or 
scale when the water is heated, and a 
post-filter that keeps both carbon and 
polyphosphate “Fines” from bleeding 
out of the cartridge. 

This filter protects hot water tanks, 
solenoids, and other machine parts 
which come in contact with hot water. 
It is used particularly for post-mix 
coffee machines.

otherwise provided a big N.G. for the 
week’s location collections. Several 
tavern spots enjoyed a little extra 
activity, however, especially those 
located near highly-populated residen- 
tial areas where the folks needed 
something to do to pass the time. 
When we voiced our views to the CB 
Chicago office, we got a big laugh. 
Wonder why? 


WATCH ’N WAIT— Operators and 
distributors waiting for word from 
Albany on the sales tax dispute will 
have to hold on a little longer. The 
hearing was pushed back to Thursday 
afternoon, Feb. 9th, and as of press 
time, no word on the progress was 
available. . . . Got a call from Larry 
Patterson out at Patterson Interna- 
tional in Cincy. Larry says our gal 
Millie McCarthy has been operating a 
fair share of Foosball Match games 
in her upstate territory with good 
success. The import exec plans to send 
his team of PR guys up to confer with 
Millie and really get the “Foos — ball” 
rolling.

appearance, construction and operation it is years ahead 
of any other shuffleboard.

ON THE AVENUE— It’s United 
Billiards for Harold Kaufman at Mu- 
sical. The distrib is now handling the 
coin table line in these parts and is 
tickled with operator response al- 
ready. “Far superior,” was Harold’s 
comment on the line. . . . The folks 
lining up outside Runyon’s window to 
watch the Rowe Phonovue action re- 
mind you of the days when TV was 
an appliance store novelty. “Why not 
get ’em onto your locations and let 
the excitement make some money for 
you,” says Runyon sales ace Louie 
Wolberg to visiting ops. . . . Larry 
Feigenbaum, felled by a heart attack 
last month while on the job down at 
Albert Simon, Inc., is resting at home 
and feeling much, much better, says 
A1 D’Inzillo. The parts Dept, ace 
should be back on the job before too 
long. . . . “The games are movin’ 
nicely, All-Tech tables going very 
well, we expect a lot of action on the 
new ‘Arctic Gun’. . .” as Lou ‘the Red- 
head’ Druckman spoke, he lit a fresh 
cigar and introduced us to Richard 
Gassner, new comptroller for United 
East Coast. “That’s our new blood,” 
said Lou proudly. 

HERE AND THERE— Atlanta’s 
own Joe Fitzpatrick, now heading up 
the South Atlantic Dist. Co. (local 
Seeburg outlet), is planning on turn- 
ing ’67 into a “Seeburg” year with 
music and vending sales down his 
way. Big kickoff bash attended by fac- 
tory execs week before last should 
lend plenty of spark for the South 
Atlantic fire. . . . Tom Tarantelli’s 
pick of the week calls on Earl Grant 
with his Decca disk ‘Hide Nor Hair’; 
Jimmy cites ‘Around the World & Bill 
Bailey’ by the great Ray Anthony on 
Capitol for juke coin-grabbers. . . . 
Among those matters under consider- 
ation for this Monday’s UJA meet 
will be entertainment and menu for 
the June victory dinner. All commit- 
tee members should attend.

CALIFORNIA CLIPPINGS 

STRUVE DISTRIBUTING PAR 
FOR THE COURSE. . . . Hear that 
Jim Lawliss is polishing up his golf 
clubs and getting ready to swing into 
action when he goes to Palm Springs 
to attend the Automatic Vendors 
Council. The meeting will be held the 
first week in March. He will be call- 
ing on ops coming and going. Britt 
Britton in town conducting service 
schools in the Struve showroom. Sorry 
to hear that Stan Larsen’s three kids 
were felled with bad colds. . . . 

INVENTORY FIRST ORDER OF 
BUSINESS AT WURLITZER 
Clayton Ballard reports that everyone 
around has been really hopping this 
past week. Henry Bebard was in there 
checking inventory and auditing the 
books. Johnny Morris is off to the 
high country, around the Indio area, 
while Bob Coolyer continues his work 
in San Diego. Hear that Tom and Gail 
Cresswell from Norco, were in visiting 
with the gang. . . . 

FROM THE RECORD RACKS 

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, 
Margaret Needleman is again at- 
tempting another comeback. Well we 
hear by way of the grapevine that she 
is about to sign a contract with the 
Baby Snooks label. As of this time 
she is still undecided as whether to 
cut “Baby I Think It’s Raining Out- 
side, But Maybe It’s Only A Drizzle” 
or the soulful “Roses Are Red, Violets 
Are Blue, Sugar Is Sweet And So Are 
You.” This will mark Margaret’s 
twenty-third attempt at a comeback. 
So far her attempts have ended with 
failure, but where there’s a will 
there’s a way. Well, most of the time. 
Anyway, we have faith in Margaret 
and this time maybe the lucky charm. 
From time to time we will be check- 
ing Margaret’s progress in her search 
for stardom and fame. . . . Buddy 
Robinson of California tells us that 
he had a most enjoyable time while 
in Las Vegas catching Nancy Wilson’s 
group, the Checkmates. The group has 
been hot stuff in San Francisco for 
sometime and they are due to have a 
record released sometime in the near 
future. A wax to watch over there is 
the new one of Herman’s Hermits, 
“There’s A Hush Around The World.” 
Another fast mover is “Happy To- 
gether” by the Turtles on White 
Whale. We caught their act a month 
or so ago at the Whisky-A-Go-Go and 
they were nothing short of fantastic. 
They have a tight, sharp act and 
they are one of the most Dolished 
groups that we have seen in many a 
moon. It looks like they have a win- 
ner in this deck. Also doing very well 
on the charts is latest from the Su- 
premes “Love Is Here And Now 
You’re Gone.” Big ones in the al- 
bum department are “Mercy, Mercy, 
Mercy” by Cannonball Adderley on 
Capitol and “Mellow Yellow” by 
Donovan on the Epic label. . . . Jim 
Mazza, Capitol rep, tells us that the 
Solle sisters of Luenhagen certainly 
have the “knack” for picking hits. He 
is referring to Capitol’s hot new pros- 
pect for stardom, the Knack. The 
group hails from Los Angeles, and 
has been playing gigs around town, 
with great success. Their first release 
is produced by that star maker him- 
self, Nick Vinet. It’s entitled “I’m 
Aware” and from the reactions of peo- 
ple who have heard them, everyone 
will soon be very much aware of the 
Knack. . . . 

HERE AND THERE. . . . Dean Mc- 
Murdie of Circle International comes 
in with the nice news that the phono- 
vue for the “Music Merchant” have 
just arrived. More All-Tech pool 
tables have just gotten in. Hans Von 
Wright, factory rep for Rowe was in 
town last week. Wasuo Nakanishi, 
from the Circle office in Japan, was 
also in visiting last week.

Round the Route 



Coin row’s buzzin’ this week, with 
ops oh so excited about the newest 
money-makin’ flipper from the re- 
t doubtable Bally firm — it’s the spankin’ 

fresh “Capersville,” whose praises 
are being sung by the entire Bally 
executive staff, including prexy Bill 
O’Donnell, national sales manager 
Paul Calamari and publicity director 
Herb Jones, who say the response to 
this gleaming flipper beauty is very 
high in the local, national and far- 
flung world wide markets. Featuring 
the amazing new “Flipper-Zipper” 
play appealer, a Kickback Freeball 
Gate, 4-Steps Free-Ball Exit, Code- 
Match score and two Kick-Out holes, 
the entire resources of Bally Mfg. 
craftsmanship and design have gone 
into this new amusement game. . . . 
Broad smiles are all that’s to be seen 
at the huge factory complex of Rock- 
' Ola Manufacturing Corp., where sales 
on the new 100-selection Coronado 
phonograph are zooming upward. 
Very heavy sales reports are delight- 
ing president and founder David C. 
Rockola, Dr. David Rockola, Don- 
ald Rockola, Les Rieck, Art Janicek 
and adchief George Hincker. . . .Mean- 
while over at Williams Electronics, 

' Inc., prexy Sam Stern has a happy 
face over the resounding success — 
make that resounding double success 
—of the two latest items from Wil- 
liams, the “Magic City” single-player 
coin-operated flipper amusement game 
(Sam says the game has created sales 
magic among operators, who avow 
that the game is a real money-maker) 
and the stunning “Arctic Gun” target 
amusement game, with its breathtak- 
ing cabinet design, mysterious and 
tantalizing “black lightning” swing- 
ing targets which tantalize even the 
most expert marksman. 

Just when we Chicagoans thought 
' that we were going to be able to 
breath easy — POW! — back came old 
man winter — with a vengeance. The 
bustling metropolis, having just got 
through digging itself out of that 
nasty white stuff, with everyone from 
the Loop to the suburbs leaning back 
on his snow shovel and congratulating 
himself on how well he did, had to 
f start all over again with the newest 
downfall. Well — someday the sun will 
shine! . . . MOA’s board meeting will 
be held March 5-7 in the Statler Hil- 
•» ton Hotel in Washington, D.C. One of 
the highlights of the meeting will be 
a seminar on the status of perform- 
ance rights royalty questions by MO A 
legal counsel Nicholas E. Allen. Also 
high up on the bill of fare for the 
meeting will be the knocking on doors 
M of the board members’ Senators and 
Congressmen. Fred Granger, manag- 
*■ ing director of the association, an- 
nounced this past week that he is in- 
viting all record one stops to join as 
full participating members of MOA. 
This is being energetically furthered 
*' by association prexy Jim Tolisano and 
secretary Bill Cannon. This participa- 
■ l > tion of the music and record people 
has been a pet project over the past 
several years of genial Bill Cannon — 
and he’s a real worker, that Bill. . . . 
FLASH: The first meeting of the new 
music chapter of the B’nai B’r’ith in 
Windy City will be held Tuesday eve- 
* ning, February 28, 6 P.M. in the Bel- 
mont Room of the Pick-Congress Ho- 
> tel. Any further information can be 
obtained by contacting Lee Brooks 
>■ of Cash Box, Maurie Price of Metro 
Distributing, Ben Arden, the orches- 
tra leader of the Empire Room at the 
Palmer House, Eddie Yalowitz of 
Royal Disc Distributing Company and 
Earl Glicken, a freelance record pro- 
motion man. 

One wonders how Alvin Gottlieb 
► maintains his composure, running to, 
hither and yon, between and betwixt 
the main D. Gottlieb and Company 
plant on the northwest side of Windy 
City and the new Northlake plant 
which is shaping up beautifully. 
Meanwhile, Nate Gottlieb and Judd 


Weinberg keep their proverbial eyes 
peeled on production and shipping of 
the single “King Of Diamonds” single 
player flipper amusement game. . . . 
Nate Feinstein runs a nice tight ship 
at World Wide Distributing Company; 
Freddie Skor is tickled over the kind 
of action he’s getting with Williams 
Electronics “Arctic Gun” and “Magic 
City” single player flipper. 

During a visit out at Midway Mfg. 
Company, after fighting through snow 
drifts, we observed, after discussions 
with Iggy Wolverton, Hank Ross, and 
Art Rapacz that the “Fun Ball” base- 
ball novelty game and the “Captain 
Kidd” rifle-target amusement game 
are faring well in all regions of this 
country. . . . Heartiest best wishes 
Lennie Garmisa and lovely June Pok- 
rass who were married Thursday 
morning, February 9, in Judge Henry 
Burman’s chambers; a delicious 
brunch was had at the Standard Club 
after the ceremonies. . . . BIG NEWS: 
The placement versatility of the new 
Scopitone wallbox was demonstrated 
by A. A. (Bill) Steiger, board chair- 
man of Tel-A-Sign Inc. on the bar at 
Palmer’s Pub in the Palmer House in 
Windy City last week. 

Big, big doings at the Sporting 
Goods Show (held here at Navy Pier 
weekend before last) brought many of 
our more prominent coin table manu- 
facturers out to show their home line 
wares to the recreation-minded public. 
Down from Bay City, Michigan came 
John ‘Himself’ Ryan, his lovely wife 
Marge, Gene Hollister and Richard 
‘Red’ Skelton with sticks and tables 
they make at the Valley Mfg. com- 
plex. Out from the East (probably to 
avoid the tremendous snowfall pres- 
ently crippling that area) were rep- 
resentatives from U.S. Billiards, and 
National Shuffleboard including Lenny 
Schneller from U.S.B. and Mel Blatt 
and Art Rose from National. Sam 
Berger and Dusty Hohbein came down 
from Dynaball with their fine line of 
billiard accessories. Likewise, over 
from D&R industries came the re- 
doubtable Dennie Ruber and Lyn Ru- 
ber. Had a marvelous time chatting 
with the Fischer Manufacturing Co. 
crew who came up from Tipton for 
the Sporting Goods extravaganza, in- 
cluding Lou Wermers, Marv Mertes, 
Charles Bailey and Gary O’Neal. Not 
to throw a cold blanket on the pro- 
ceedings but a Sunday snowstorm al- 
most negated attendance that day. 
Lucky things cleared and a worth- 
while time was enjoyed by all exhibi- 
tors.

Little LPs This Month 

In Release For February: 




As part of their continuing coop- 
erative program with various record 
companies, Seeburg has released six 
Little LPs this month covering vari- 
ous music fields. The reviews below 
are given on the basis of probable 
jukebox market potentiality, but loca- 
tion preferences should be kept in 
mind. Operators should consult their 
local one-stops or local record com- 
pany distributing offies for the avail- 
ability of these or any other Little 
LPs desired. 

BRENDA LEE 

“Cornin’ On Strong” Decca DL 74825 
* Seeburg Part No. 1098 

During the early part of her career, 
Miss Lee came out with, and made a 
hit of, You Can Depnd On Me, on 
which she did a pro job. Since that 
time she’s gotten even better. The 
title tune was a healthy hit for her a 
few months ago and the other tracks 
are good anywhere. One of the few 
artists who can go pop and R & B at 
once. Catch the jazzy bossa nova 
treatment of What Now My Love, a 
refreshing change from its normal 
ham tempo. Her version of You’ve 
Got Your Troubles may remind lis- 
teners of Dinah Washington, a pleas- 
ant memory in R & B locations. Tip- 
top singing. Program anywhere. 

WES MONTGOMERY 


organ oozes out the melody. Perfect 
for polite dancing or ice skating. At 
least one LP of this type should be 
programmed on every box to catch 
the patron who wants a little music 
but doesn’t want to be burdened by it 
— in short, a jukebox alternative to 
FM radio, which the bartender is 
likely to turn on if the jukebox isn’t 
going. Use on adult locations. 

BROTHER JACK McDUFF 

“A Change Is Gonna Come” Atlantic 
SD71463 * Seeburg Part No. 1087 
Very very swingy indeed. McDuff 
seems to play with the Fats Waller 
attitude: have fun with it. For exam- 
ple, Down In The Valley which begins 
as a straight melodic recital (McDuff 
la-la’ing along) and turns into a 
clank-clank stomp. McDuff’s organ 
playing is skitterish; he makes it 
jump, playing against the Big Box’s 
natural funereal tone. His band is 
right on the button; it plays the notes 
and sounds loose at the same time. 
Catch the pounce rhythm on his tune 
Gonna Hang Me Up A Sign. Great 
fun and good jazz. Program in hippie 
locations, discotheques, R & B and 
musicians’ bars.

Seeburg Part No. 1067 

Chapter XXI, Book VI in the con- 
tinuing story that asks the question: 
does it really take two men to play 
“ one-finger piano ? To their credit, 
Messrs F and T have come up with 
*• a charming tune of their own, Three 
Over Four. As usual, they are backed, 
> supported and cradled by a big band, 
which is on top of the situation and 
. does good, well-drilled work. The ar- 
rangement on Work Song is done in 
the manner of Gershwin’s Concerto 
in F, with either Mr. F or Mr. T hav- 
ing a go at the keys in jackhammer 
■V style. Program in middle-aged clubs, 
hotel lounges, resorts.

New 100mm L&M 
Menthol Premieres 

NEW YORK— L&M Menthol Tall, 
the first 100mm filter cigarette to be 
marketed solely as a menthol ciga- 
rette, will be introduced in 11 Western 
states in early February, Milton E. 
Harrington, president of Liggett & 
Myers Tobacco Company, announced. 
“L&M Menthol Tall is being intro- 


duced to keep pace with consumer de- 
mands in three important marketing 
areas,” Harrington said. “First, L&M 
Menthol Tall gives us an additional 
entry in the fastest growing segment 
of the U.S. cigarette market, the 
menthol market, which already ac- 
counts for about one-fifth of the total 
cigarette volume in this country. 

“Secondly, L&M Menthol Tall posi- 
tions us favorably in the new cig- 
arette category, 100mm cigarettes, 
which many consumers began to show 
preference for late last year. And 
finally, L&M Menthol Tall will pro- 
vide menthol smokers with a famous 
brand name cigarette in the ‘tall’ 
length.” 

L&M Menthol Tall comes in a 
“soft” package and sells at popular 
prices. The pack is green and gold, 
differing from the red and white 
L&M Filter pack. The new menthol 
pack has the well known L&M mono- 
gram printed in white. Heavy TV 
and magazine schedules and outdoor 
advertising will support the new 
brand beginning in early February.

relations effort in behalf of the in-

firm in Philadelphia bearing his 
name, in presenting a regulation-size

Private David Bervin, of Austin, 
Minn., is shown trying out the new 
recreational feature. The pool table 
was contributed by Rosen through 
the 32 Carat Club, of which he and 
his brother, Harry Rosen, vice-presi-
